Storm Bronagh: Second Named Storm to hit UK in as Many Days

A day after Storm Ali brought record-breaking 91mph (146km/h) wind gusts to Northern Ireland, a second named storm –Bronagh– is tearing across the UK.

Gusts of 65mph (105km/h) have been recorded at Capel Curig, Snowdonia — among the strongest brought by Storm Bronagh overnight.

Sennybridge in Powys received 74mm (2.9in) of rain in less than 24 hours — half the village’s typical monthly rainfall.

Multiple flood warnings and alerts are in place across the country.

Just 24 hours before Storm Bronagh hit, the UK was battered by Storm Ali and it’s 100mph winds:

Forecasters are keeping close watch on another menacing-looking low pressure approaching from the West, due to hit Sunday.

Possibly the third named storm in just four days.
