Britain is on alert for a chaotic New Year as Storm Dylan is forecast to hit the UK with 80mph winds early on Sunday morning.
The Met Office issued six severe weather warnings of which an amber, the second most serious alert, for snow in parts of northern England, four yellow snow and ice warnings and one yellow warning for wind.
The Met Office said: “Some very strong winds are possible across Northern Ireland and then southern Scotland on New Year’s Eve.
“There is a small chance of damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs, with the potential for injuries and danger to life from flying debris.
“Large waves and beach material being thrown into coastal areas could also be a hazard.”
Emma Sharples, a forecaster for the UK Met Office, said: “Met Eireann has now named Storm Dylan which will affect Ireland and then northern Britain on Saturday night and through Sunday.
“It is looking very unsettled over the next few days with several low-pressure systems coming in off the Atlantic.
“Friday night will see a band of rain pass through England and Wales and later Scotland with another system on Saturday night giving rise to the fourth named storm of the season.
“It will remain unsettled through next week with more rain and strong winds in the forecast.”
BBC Weather, on behalf of the Met Office, issued a yellow warning of ice for the Greater London area.
Dylan will be the seventh storm of the year, following the three named storms Aileen, Brian and Caroline.
