Storm Eunice has wreaked havoc across the UK since its arrival this morning (February 18), disrupting trains, grounding flights, closing schools, and leaving homes without power.

The storm followed quickly on the tails of Storm Dudley, leaving Britons no time to recover from the previous week of dangerous winds.

Many are wondering if the extreme weather conditions will die down in time for the weekend.

Here is all you need to know about when Storm Eunice is predicted to end.

When will Storm Eunice end?

The good news is that although Storm Eunice is incredibly ferocious, it will also be short-lived.

The majority of the Met Office’s weather warnings currently in place are expected to end at 9pm tonight.

Weather presented Becky Mantin told This Morning: ‘We are going to continue with the very windy conditions but in terms of Eunice itself, it is not going to be until later on this evening until things start to calm down.’

The weather will gradually start easing this evening, easing from the West first, where the storm arrived from.

Weather conditions will remain gusty over the weekend, but not as dangerous, with red weather warnings being de-escalated to yellow.

The yellow weather warning for wind covering London, south-east England, south-west England, Wales, and parts of the West Midlands will end at 6pm tomorrow.

However, weather forecasts are not always 100%, and so it is possible that the alerts will be extended if conditions fail to get better.

The Met Office weather forecast for Saturday reads: ‘Rain moving eastwards across England and Wales with some snow in the north, mainly on hills, and turning windy again with gales in the south. Brighter across Scotland.’

Sunday will be breezy and quite wet, with strong westerly winds.

Another storm, named Fraklin, is predicted to arrive in the UK on Sunday – however, it is not expected to be anywhere near as powerful as Eunice.
