Storm Evert is set to bring 70mph winds and heavy rain to some of the country through tonight and tomorrow.

Wirral will miss the strongest of winds which will hit the South West of the UK where there is an amber weather warning in place.

Heavy rain is expected to batter Wirral through the early hours of Friday.

Met Office Principal Operational Meteorologist Dan Suri said, “Storm Evert will bring some high winds, particularly along the northern coast of the southwest, but there will be gusty winds more widely in southern areas, which brings the potential for some impacts, especially for those that might be travelling or camping in the weather.  

“Storm Evert will move eastwards across southern UK during Friday daytime, clearing into the North Sea during Friday evening. As well as the high winds, there will also be some heavy rain before it leaves our shores, with up to 40 mm possible over parts of Wales and the southwest and the potential for 40 or 50 mm rain in a short period of time from heavy, possibly thundery, showers over parts of eastern and central England on Friday afternoon.”
