Storm Dudley could also bring blizzards to the northern half of the UK from tomorrow night into Thursday morning, while Storm Eunice will bring strong winds and wintry conditions on Friday to central parts.

Hilly parts of Northumberland have had a fresh snow covering and more is expected. Windy conditions have been felt in areas such as Birmingham.

Met Office chief meteorologist Paul Gundersen said an active jet stream is driving lowpressure systems.

Strong winds will hit western Scotland and Northern Ireland tomorrow evening, pushing towards northern England overnight and into Thursday.

Exposed coasts and hills of Scotland face winds of 90mph, with up to 70mph inland.

Areas most at risk from Dudley have amber warnings with “significant disruption”. The Met Office said Dudley will bring heavy snow in the Grampians. A spokesman added: “Lower down, any snow is likely to be shortlived but when it is falling it is likely to be blizzard conditions.”

On Friday it will be the turn of central areas as Eunice arrives.

Gusts could reach 70mph inland though the worst-affected areas are uncertain at present, the Met Office said.

Heavy rain is expected and there is a potential for significant snow over hills in the Midlands and further north.
