PEOPLE in North Wales are warned to expect wet and windy weather as Storm Diana is expected to hit the United Kingdom on Wednesday and Thursday. This could be accompanied by winds of up to 70mph.

Storm Diana was named by the IPMA Portuguese weather service, and threatened the Azores archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean on Monday.

The yellow weather warning, the lowest level, covers the city and a big swathe of Lancashire from 9am to 9pm on Wednesday (28 November). While Harrogate is not directly affected by the official warning, the weather conditions on Wednesday and Thursday are expected to be poor.

The Met Office has this morning issued a severe weather warning for strong winds for Sheffield and South Yorkshire.

"Storm Diana will make its way towards the west and that will certainly beef up the rain".

It will be wet and windy in Reading this week.

Coastal flooding will be possible during these times as the severe winds and high seas associated with Storm Diana hit the country.

There's more wet and blustery weather on the forecast today with a yellow weather warning in place throughout tomorrow. "The extensive warning doesn't quite include the whole of Fife, but it is for part of Fife and big swathes of the east coast right up to Dundee".

Portsmouth City Council said that the event, which was planned to take place from 4pm to 6pm on Wednesday evening, had to be called off because of the high winds and rain. "This will come on top of rainfall on Tuesday, and melting snow".

Storm Diana is expected to move away during Wednesday evening, although showers are likely to persist into Thursday, November 29.

"A Status Orange weather warning is likely to be issued as more disturbed weather is expected for Wednesday".
