Weather warning: Met Office

The Met oiffice has officially named a storm that will bring very windy weather on Boxing day as Storm Bella.

Here in Trafford winds coulkd reach 40mph in some places which will cause some issues, heavy rain is also expected leading to localised flooding.

Other areas if the country will see winds hitting 80mph which is strong enough to bring powerlines down, the south and south west will be worst hit.

Storm Bella came about due to high pressure going one way and low pressure the other sending a deep low towards the UK.

Manchester is lucky in some ways due to the mountains shielding us, this though depends on which way the winds are blowing and how deep the low is.
