Sheffield weather: Hour-by-hour wind forecast as 70mph gusts set to hit UK
Sheffield is set to be battered by winds as strong as 48mph today as it braces itself for a day of bad weather.
A yellow weather warning is in place for much of the north of England and Scotland with the Met Office warning that some disruption could be caused.
Rain is also predicted for much of the day, with the heaviest being this morning and then in the late afternoon.
It was initially said that the bad weather would be connected to Storm Brendan, however forecasters have since said that the wind speeds to not warrant a storm name.
Mr Burkill said: "Many parts of the UK, particularly in the North West, will get off to a wet and windy start."
Two weather warnings are in place for wind across the north of England and southern Scotland, as well as rain across the west of Scotland.
Mr Burkill continued: "In that warning, we talk about rain of between 20mm and 40 mm, and perhaps up to 60 mm across the western part of Scotland.
"The greatest impacts from the winds look to be from southern Scotland, Northern Ireland, northern Wales and northern England, so quite a big patch.
"We can see gusts of 50 to 60 miles per hour up to 70 in parts.
"Despite the wind and rain, it is going to be a remarkably mild day. There will be highs of 13C (55.4F) to 14C (57.2F) and that is quite a few degrees above average."
Mr Burkill added that the worst of the rain will clear over the next two days, but most places will see "quite a drop" in temperature between Tuesday and Wednesday.
