Storm warning for Monday

The Met Office have issued a yellow alert for storm force winds of up to 80mph across the UK on Monday.

Hurricane Katia
The tail end of Hurricane Katia is heading across the Atlantic and will most likely hit Scotland hardest but of course it will affect the weather in the rest of the UK.  Even if the storm lands further south we should be sheltered from the worst of it here in Shropshire by Ireland and the Welsh mountains but high winds are still expected.

My advice is, if you have a gazeebo or similar in your garden then take it down this week just in case.
