The two hurricanes are set to collide one after the other, as Hurricane Dudley brought a yellow warning for strong winds in central Scotland and northern England at 1pm today, with a strong amber warning for landing at 2pm.
However, with both warnings due to expire tomorrow morning, Hurricane Younes will bring a third warning – a yellow alert for wind and heavy snow that was issued on Friday between 3 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Scotland is now facing a major disruption for three days.
The Meteorological Department says Hurricane Dudley will land Wednesday afternoon, coming from the west.
It said: “Very strong westerly winds are expected in southwestern Scotland and the northern parts of Northern Ireland on Wednesday afternoon, spreading eastward in southern Scotland and northern England in the evening.
“There is still some uncertainty about the time and place of the strongest winds but gusts of up to 60-70 mph are expected inside the country. Masked sites. “
The Meteorological Department said Friday’s warning: “Snow, heavy downpours, Hurricane Younis is expected to move northward as it moves into the UK on Friday.”
“There is still uncertainty in the track of Hurricane Younis and snowfall is not expected in all areas within the warning area.
“However, in some places about 5 cm of snow may fall below the shores.
“It is expected to accumulate in the mountains, although with 10-20 cm it is possible to get up to 30 cm from 250 meters.
“Simultaneous strong winds can cause severe exposure, blizzard conditions and falling snow.”
Catherine Smith, Environment Agency Flood Duty Manager, said:
“We urge people to stay safe on the coast and warn wave watchers of the unnecessary danger of taking ‘storm selfies’.
“Flooding down coastal roads is also possible and people should avoid driving in flood waters as only 30 cm of flowing water is enough to keep your vehicle moving.”
