A Status Orange weather alert is for weather conditions which have the capacity to impact significantly on people in the affected areas. The issue of an Orange level weather warning implies that all recipients in the affected areas should prepare themselves in an appropriate way for the anticipated conditions.
The bad weather is associated with Storm Ewan, with some severe and damaging gusts along south and southeast coasts. It will become very wet too, with widespread heavy rain and localised flooding.
