Although the storm is yet to be named and Merseyside has not been issued a warning, winds are still expected to be very strong.

Winds across the region could reach 50mph, making it dangerous to be by the coast as large waves could be whipped up by the stormy conditions.

It will feel cold too as temperatures will be around 13C, but with the strong winds it’ll feel closer to a chilly 7C.

The Met Office say: “A spell of rain and possible gales early Friday, followed by sunshine and showers.

“Often windy over the weekend with showers or longer spells of rain, heavy at times. Cold”.
