Storm Eunice is causing havoc across the travel network, and train operators across Britain have urged passengers to avoid travelling as emergency speed limits are in place
Across the country, schools, roads and businesses have also shut, due to concerns over flying debris caused by gusts of up to 90mph.
Here is everything you need to know about it.
When will Storm Eunice be over?
It’s thought that the worst of Storm Eunice should be over within 24 hours.
The majority of the Met Office’s weather warnings currently in place - including its Amber and rare Red warnings - are expected to end at 9pm today (Friday February 18) areas under a Yellow weather warning should see conditions improve from 6pm.
But as is always the case with the weather it’s hard to forecast just exactly what will happen with 100% certainty.
While the strongest winds usually take place for a short period of time, perhaps around four hours, and across an area as small as 30 miles, the Met Office said the phenomenon can cause “significant damage and risk to life”.
