The Met Office has issued an Amber warning for London later this week. 

Storm Eunice is expected to cause significant disruption and bring "extremely strong winds" to the region on Friday. 

The amber warning comes into force at 3am Friday morning and will last until 9pm Friday evening. 

It covers all of London and much of England with coastal areas expected to be hit with the strongest winds. 

What to expect from amber weather warning for London? 

This is what the Met Office are warning to expect:

  • There is a good chance that flying debris could result in a danger to life
  • Damage to buildings and homes is likely, with roofs blown off and power lines brought down
  • Roads, bridges and railway lines are likely to close, with delays and cancellations to bus, train, ferry services and flights
  • There is a good chance that power cuts, possibly prolonged, could occur and possibly affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage
  • Large waves are likely and beach material is likely to be thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties
  • It is likely there will be falling branches and some uprooted trees

A spokesman said: "Extremely strong winds may develop over southwest England early on Friday, before spreading north and east during the day.

"Whilst there is still some uncertainty in the track of Eunice, there is an increasing likelihood of widespread inland wind gusts of 60-70 mph and up to 80 mph in a few places."
