In the capital, winds are likely to rise as high as 45mph, bringing torrential rain overnight.

"There is a small chance of injuries and danger to life, as well as minor property damage, from flying debris".

The first storm of 2018 is due to make landfall this afternoon with Eleanor bringing winds of up to 130km/h.

"We are monitoring the situation and have issued flood alert and warning in coastal areas".

A yellow weather warning has been issued across the South-east ahead of the arrival of Storm Eleanor tonight (Tuesday).

A WARNING was issued to 14 counties earlier today, advising people to stay inside as winds of up to 130 km/h were predicted.

The firm is offering evens for the wind speed to reach as high as 100mph in mainland United Kingdom before the week is out as Storm Dylan continues to batter the country, while it is 2-1 for snow to fall in London this week.

Coastal roads and properties along Britain's western and southern coasts are vulnerable to high waves throwing beach material on to sea fronts, forecasters warned.

He added: "It could remain more unsettled in the south". Road conditions can quickly deteriorate during very heavy rainfall, with drains becoming swamped or blocked and standing water causing surface spray, reduced visibility and potentially leading to flooding.
