UK weather Storm Erik on its way to Britain as yellow warning for 60mph winds issued England and Scotland

STORM Erik is causing chaos across the country as it batters the United Kingdom with high winds.

The warning for heavy rain is in place over the western and Highlands areas up until Saturday afternoon.

The south is set to be temporarily hit by a band of wet weather, while snow is expected to fall in higher part of Wales and England's Peak District.

One lane is closed on the Severn Bridge between South Wales and south west England due to the strong winds, and the A548 is closed in both directions around Mostyn, north Wales, because a tree had fallen across the carriageway.

Meteorologist Simon Partridge from the Met Office, said: 'A bit of a mixed bag this Sunday morning.

Parts of the country could also experience hail and thunder.

Conditions in the north will be brighter, with some rain and gales possible later on.

Storm Erik is here, and it has resulted in rain, gale force winds and a number of weather warnings.
