Three Weather Warnings in place for Cumbria

With America’s Storm Jonas just passing over, the UK’s next storm - Gertrude - is ready to take its place, with three weather warnings in force for Cumbria.

An amber weather warning is in place from 3am on Friday until 10am, with winds of up to 70mph expected, potentially reaching speeds of 80mph along coastal and elevated areas.

The wind may lead to structural damage and power disruptions across the county, and the Met Office is warning that people should be prepared.

There are also two yellow weather warnings in place for Cumbria, for snow and rain.

Between 20 and 40mm of rain was expected to fall in parts of the county between 3pm today (Thursday), and noon on Friday. Elevated areas may see as much as 60mm of rainfall.
