One of the worst storms in a generation has hit the UK today.

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.

Areas including south Wales, Bristol, Cornwall, and the south coast of England, will remain under a yellow weather warning for wind until 6pm on Saturday.

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”.
