Waves of potentially damaging wind and slashing rain will sweep over the United Kingdom this week as no fewer than three powerful storm target Northwest Europe.
The first of three storms will bring strong winds, some as gales, throughout the British Archipelago Tuesday into Wednesday. Gusts will reach 80 to locally 130 km/h (50-80 mph) in Scotland, Northern Ireland and much of northern England. Winds could trigger minor damage as well as disruptions to travel.
Farther south, winds will reach 65 to perhaps 95 km/h (40-60 mph.)
Rain shed by this storm will turn to snow over hills, especially in Scotland, where roads over higher ground may be snow-covered.
A second storm will bring strong winds and rain as it tracks through the Republic of Ireland to southern England Wednesday into Thursday.
A third storm, this one slated to reach the region Thursday night and early Friday, local time, could be the strongest of the three, at least for London and southern areas, with respect to wind and rain.
