The remnants of Tropical Storm Henri are approaching the UK.

Tropical Storm Henri is bearing down on the British Isles, and is set to sweep across the country on Wednesday.

Although the storm will have lost some of its power by the time it reaches the UK, it will still deliver gale force winds and torrential rain.

Motorists are being warned that the atrocious weather will make driving conditions hazardous.

The remnants of Henri are expected to reach the South West of the UK in the early hours of Wednesday, before moving eastwards and reaching our region in time for the morning rush hour.

The storm system formed east of Bermuda on Wednesday September 9, and the next day was upgraded from a Tropical Depression to a Tropical Storm.

A weather system is classed as a Tropical Storm when it has one minute sustained wind speeds of 39-72mph and 10 minute sustained wind speeds of 35-63mph.

The next step up from a Tropical Storm in terms of tropical cyclone classification is a Category 1 Hurricane.
