Where will Storm Dudley and Storm Eunice hit? Snow and disruption set for UK

Blizzard conditions are expected in some parts of the UK as the public prepares for two storms in one week.

Storm Dudley will hit first, expected to result in wins of 90mph, bringing with it heavy snow showers from Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

However, just as Dudley is calming down, Storm Eunice is set to bring further strong winds, rain and snow on Friday.

the Met Office has added an amber warning to the yellow alert which was already in place, with disruption said to follow the storms.

“Storm Dudley is expected to affect the UK on Wednesday night and Thursday, bringing a period of very strong and disruptive winds,” the Met Office said.

The warning levels mean there is a real danger to life from the likes of large waves, thrown debris and falling trees.

Where will Storm Dudley hit?

Despite the name, Dudley will not get the brunt of the storm’s force.

Scotland and northern England are set to be battered by Storm Dudley, but all parts of the UK will feel the storm’s impact in one way or another.

The entirety of Scotland and Northern Ireland have been placed under a yellow weather warning, while the Scottish lowlands, borders and England’s north are under an amber alert.

“It’s not just going to be strong winds this week,” Met Office meteorologist Tom Morgan warned.

Heavy snow could blanket Scotland, but southern parts of England are also in for wild weather.

“All parts of the UK will see some very strong winds at times.”

Where will Storm Eunice hit?

As well as hitting Scotland and northern England, Morgan said “the southern parts of England and Wales will see their turn,” from Dudley and onto Storm Eunice.

“It looks very, very windy in the south at this stage for Friday,” he said.

Eunice is set to bring heavy rain and there is a “potential for some significant snowfall over hills in the Midlands and further north,” the Met Office commented.
