Lytham St. Anne’s Set For Big Change After Warm Christmas – Storm Gerrit On Its Way Tomorrow

Lytham St. Anne’s should brace itself for Storm Gerrit which is set to batter much of the country from tomorrow (Wednesday 27th December). Weather warnings are in place as Storm Gerrit is forecast to lash the country with snow, wind and rain.

Storm Gerrit has been named by the Met Office today (Tuesday 26th December) as warnings were issued for tomorrow (Wednesday 27th December) and Thursday, with stormy heavy rain to many parts of the UK and  winds of up to 70mph possible in some areas.

People planning to travel back home after the Christmas holidays have been urged to take care on the roads.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist Frank Saunders said, ‘Storm Gerrit will run towards the western UK on Wednesday and bring with it potential impacts for much of the country,’ His colleague Simon Partridge agreed saying that wet and windy weather will cover pretty much the whole of the UK with significant snowfall in parts of Scotland.

Meteorologist Partridge added that the storm was named as a warning to people coming home from the Christmas holidays. He said: “Due to the extent of the warnings that are being issued, it was deemed that a named storm would be a good idea because it will highlight to the public the risk associated, particularly as tomorrow is likely to be quite a busy day on the roads with people travelling back home from Christmas.

In terms of rain, we have rain warnings out for the whole of Northern Ireland, western Wales, northwest England, and then there’s a combined sort of rain and snow warning for Scotland.’
