"With Storm Dylan continuing to disrupt the nation, we are offering just evens for the wind speed to reach as high as 100mph in mainland United Kingdom this week, while we are not ruling snowfall in London", added Hill.

Carol Halt, the agency's flood duty manager, said: "We urge people to stay safe on the coast - take extreme care on coastal paths and promenades, and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger trying to take "storm selfies".

"Any flooding is expected to coincide with periods of high tide".

The rest of the country is subject to a status yellow warning.


Tonight will be extremely windy and blustery in all areas overnight, with the strongest of the winds early tonight along the east coast and also in Atlantic coastal counties, with a risk of coastal flooding possible.

"The peak tide will be at midnight tonight, and we have had our teams out clear grids and gullies in preparation for the rain". If you are in areas affected by the flood warnings please be prepared and where necessary take action to protect property, friends and family.

It will remain in place until 2pm on Wednesday January 3.

A warning had been in place from 6pm this evening (Tuesday), however, with Storm Eleanor approaching, the Met Office has opted to increase its alert. Temperatures in the afternoon will be 7 to 9 degrees and will feel much colder in the strong westerly winds.
