Storm Ewan has been named and will batter the UK, but how will it impact Merseyside ?


The Met Office has named the 5th Storm of the season just after Storm Doris brought 80mph winds to Merseyside.

Storm Ewan is set to batter the UK throughout Sunday and into Monday, forcing the Met Office to issue severe weather warnings for parts of Wales, as 70mph winds could hit parts of the country.

Will Merseyside be impacted ?

Merseyside is not currently under any weather warnings as the worst of the winds are set to hit wales and the north of Scotland.

Winds are expected to peak at around 45-50mph on Merseyside at around 4pm according to forecasts, so it will be windy.

Although this storm will be nothing on the scale of Doris, there will still be some large waves at coastal areas of Merseyside due to the winds.

The Met Office say: “An area of low pressure is expected to begin developing to the west of the Republic of Ireland on Sunday morning before moving northeastwards across Scotland.

“This will generate some very strong winds to the south of the low centre.

“However there is a lot of uncertainty over the exact track and depth of this system and therefore the strongest winds”.
