Storm ANGUS set to bring 80mph winds to Sussex this Sunday

This afternoon, the MET office has issued a warning to expect severe winds when storm ANGUS hits Sussex tomorrow.

Angus is the first named storm of Autumn 2016, and it’s expected to sweep through south east England bringing strong wind and rain on Sunday morning.

Delays and restrictions are expected at Gatwick during the morning wave, with the weather expected to be at its worst between 2am and 11am.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Andy Page, said: “Storm Angus is developing rapidly and will move northeast across southern and southeast England during Sunday morning. Southerly then southwesterly gales are likely with storm force winds developing over the English Channel and affecting some coastal districts. Very squally showers are also expected such that isolated gusts of 70-75 mph are also possible further inland in the Amber warning area.”
