Storm Diana will become engulfed by another low-pressure system swirling in the Atlantic spawning a tangle of weather fronts which will batter Britain through Thursday and Friday, the Met Office said.

George Flinton of the AA said: "Heavy rain and strong wind, coupled with commuting home in the dark, can make for some very hazardous driving conditions".

He said: "We have a yellow warning for wind in the west of the United Kingdom for today and tomorrow".

Severe rainfall will affect other parts of the United Kingdom, with the storm expected to bring between 60mm and 80mm of rain. There will also be high seas, with a risk of coastal flooding.

A Met Éireann forecaster warned there would be "gale force winds associated with Storm Diana on Wednesday".

A yellow weather warning is issued by the Met Office in conjunction with the National Severe Weather Warning Service when severe impacts, including travel disruption, are expected. Yet more rain and strong winds expected next Saturday night and on Sunday.

Predicted gusts during Wednesday

Storm Diana, named by the IPMA Portuguese weather service, is now threatening the Azores and is due to make itself felt over western parts of the United Kingdom on Wednesday.

Gusts of up to 80mph are possible as Storm Diana moves across the UK.

Powerful winds topping 85 km/h will blast all of Ireland as well as Scotland, Wales, southeast England and northern England during the day on Wednesday.

Tomorrow Wednesday will be a very windy, blustery day, with strong to gale force winds, southerly veering southwest giving some severe gusts in places.

"The worst place is on the west coast".

Strong southerly winds draw up more mild air with temperatures up into the mid-teens.
