Storm to delay travel later this week

Several rounds of rain and gusty winds will impact the United Kingdom this week with the potential for a travel-delaying windstorm to occur late in the week, according to AccuWeather.

    The first in the series of storms will produce a period of rain and gusty winds across the UK through tonight. Wind gusts of 48-65km/h are possible across Northern England, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

    A more potent storm will set its sights on the UK from Friday into Saturday.

    Impacts are expected across the entire country, with strong winds and rain for an extended period.

    Travel delays will range from car to rail and air traffic due to strong winds and also the potential for localised flooding.

    The greatest flooding threat will be across Northern Ireland, northwest England and northern Wales.

    Flight delays and cancellations will be highly probable during this storm.
