THE Irish meteorological service Met Eireann has named Storm Jocelyn, which will hit Cumbria on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Storm Jocelyn will hit only a little over a day after Storm Isha battered the region.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for rain from 11am tomorrow until 7pm. The weather warning extends from Leyburn in the east, across Dales towns and villages such as Hawes and Sedbergh, and over the Lake District up to Keswick and down to Newby Bridge and Kirkby Lonsdale.


There is also a yellow weather warning for wind which encompasses all of the north west. This will start at 4pm tomorrow and end at 1pm on Wednesday 24 January. 

The Met Office states on the website: "A strong jet stream is pushing another large-scale, low-pressure system from the Atlantic across northern Scotland bringing wet and windy weather for Tuesday night and into Wednesday for much of the northern half of the country. Amber and yellow National Severe Weather warnings for wind have been issued covering much of the UK together with yellow warnings for rain covering parts of western and southern Scotland, and northwest England." 

Met Office chief meteorologist, Steve Willington, said: “Although this system will be a step down relative to Storm Isha, with the damage and clean up still underway, we could potentially see more impacts from Storm Jocelyn.

"Outbreaks of heavy rain on Tuesday could bring rainfall accumulations of 15 to 20 mm quite widely with 40 to 50 mm over higher ground in southwest Scotland, the Scottish Highlands and parts of northwest England."
