FRESH on the heals of Storm Eunice, comes Storm Franklin and an updated Yellow Warning for Teignbridge from the Met Office.

Storm Franklin has been named as the low-pressure system is expected to bring high winds during Sunday night and into Monday morning for much of the UK.

The updated Met Office alert covers Teignbridge and the rest of Devon from Noon today to 1pm tomorrow (Monday).

A Met Office spokesperson said: ‘Winds are likely to strengthen across England and Wales on Sunday, as an increasingly squally band of rain moves southeastwards.

‘Gusts of 55-60 mph are expected widely around south and west facing coasts, but possibly also briefly inland.

‘There is a chance that a few exposed places could see gusts near 70 mph.

‘Strong gusts associated with blustery wintry showers will follow from the north. A swathe of very strong winds will reach Northern Ireland later Sunday evening in association with Storm Franklin.

‘These very strong winds will spread to many other western, central and southern areas of the UK overnight and early Monday, with gusts widely 50-60 mph, whilst west facing coastal districts will see gusts of 65-75 mph and perhaps 80 mph briefly near north coast of Northern Ireland.

‘In the south these strong winds may hamper, or slow, ongoing recovery efforts in the wake of Storm Eunice. Winds will ease steadily from the northwest during the remainder of Monday.’
