After the damage and disruption of Storm Ali and Bronagh, another blustery blitz is set bring more volatile weather to the United Kingdom during the weekend.

Forecasters say this period of wild weather will be remnants of a system linked to Hurricane Florence which claimed more than 30 lives in the US last week.

Yellow wind warnings - meaning there is a likelihood of damage - have been put in place for much of England and parts of Wales.

On Wednesday Storm Ali caused travel chaos and left tens of thousands of homes without power as it barrelled across the north of the United Kingdom and Ireland.

It comes as parts of the United Kingdom is affected by Storm Ali, which has created unsafe 80mph winds.

The unsettled weather is set to continue with another weather system forecast to bring more wind and rain across parts of the United Kingdom on Sunday and into Monday.

Only a day after Storm Ali killed two people and wreaked havoc in the north of the UK, England and Wales are bracing themselves for the second named storm of the season. Keep up to date with the weather warnings via our forecast pages, mobile app or social media as there may be up dates throughout the day. It will track up the east Irish Sea and into northern England later today and tonight.

The Met Office says: "Storm Bronagh will bring wind gusts of 45-50mph quite widely around exposed coasts and in a few spots inland, while some gusts of 60-65mph are possible, particularly overnight into Friday across eastern England".

Flood warnings have followed after some parts of the United Kingdom had a month's worth of rain in one night.

There is the chance of a third storm later this weekend.

In south-west Wales, there were 12 flood warnings in place on Friday morning, with almost 40 flood alerts issued across the country, while there were warnings in place in Staffordshire, Chesterfield and South Yorkshire, with more than 30 alerts across the north of England and West Midlands. This is the fourth year that the Met Office has named storms that hit Ireland and the UK.
