Just after storm Gertrude, the Met Office have named storm Henry as the 8th storm of the season, which could bring winds of up to 60mph to Merseyside.
Southwesterly winds will strengthen later on Sunday to bring gale or severe gale force winds across many northern and central parts of the UK through Monday.

Gusts of 60mph are likely quite widely on Merseyside, especially at coastal area’s.
Winds over 80 mph are possible to the exposed parts of the northwest of Scotland.
A forecaster at the Met Office said: “A large, vigorous area of low pressure is expected to move northeastwards, passing just to the north of Scotland on Monday.
“This will bring a swathe of very strong west or southwesterly winds across much of the UK.

They added: “There is still some uncertainty on exact track and depth of the developing low, and as such this alert will be reviewed and updated again on Sunday”.
The warnings are in force from 6am Monday – 6am Tuesday, not long after Merseyside was put on alert for snow and ice.
Parts of the region experienced some sleet and hail showers on Saturday, this was the scene at New Brighton as one of our readers was caught out in a dramatic hail storm.
