Massive Atlantic depression heading toward Britain this weekend: UK Met Office

Major hurricane force winds are forecast to “smash” into the UK, causing significant damage this weekend. The storm could prove to be more devastating than the October St Jude’s Day Storm.

“A very low depression is coming in from the Atlantic on Friday night which we are expecting to be significant. Heavy downpours will bring two inches of rain in some parts of the UK,” said the UK Met Office.
