Britain braces for more gales after Storm Brendan diverts flights

But forecasters said winds of 60mph-70mph could continue to batter north-western Scotland into Tuesday, although it will no longer be classed as Storm Brendan.

Meteorologist Alex Burkill, from the Met Office, said more wet and windy weather is forecast to come up from the South West on Tuesday afternoon.

“That’s not Storm Brendan – Storm Brendan has moved northwards by this point,” he said.

“It’s not too far away so we’re still under the influence of it, but this new feature that comes in is going to bring some heavy, persistent rain across much of the UK, to be honest, with very strong winds.”

Mr Burkill said the gales were much less likely to reach Monday’s highs of over 80mph, but inland areas could be hit with gusts of more than 50mph.

He added: “For many, tomorrow will actually be a windier day than today, despite the fact that today was named and tomorrow isn’t.”

Eight flood warnings and 79 alerts issued by the Environment Agency remained in place on Monday night.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning of rain to cover the South East on Tuesday, where heavy rain is expected to cause disruption and the flooding of a few homes and businesses is “likely”.
