And it will bring white stuff, as snow will fall in parts of Cumbria as early as Friday.

WXCharts weather maps predict that as the day continues, areas south of Manchester will see more clouds.

Weather forecaster Brian Gaze told show: “Over the next week, it looks like high pressure is gathering farther southwest than recently.

“That will lead to changeable and sometimes windy weather, particularly in the northern half of the UK.

“Polar air currents from the northwest can bring brief colder spells, with showers turning winter in the north and over the Welsh mountains.”

It happened after a boy was nine years old crushed to death by a fallen tree in Staffordshire on Saturday when winds peaked at 90mph.

A woman, 60 years old, was also killed after the tree was blown over in the strong wind in Aberdeen, while a man, 32, died after a truck overturned on the M74.

And the devastation is far from over, after a yellow weather warning was issued earlier today.

The Met Office urged Britons to be careful when outside during Cyclone Corrie, especially those living on the east coast of England.

Wind warnings have covered just north of Norwich up to the village of Seahouses in Northumberland.

Gusts is set to hit a top speed of 60mph, with “huge and dangerous waves” and “injury and danger to life due to flying debris”.

A yellow wind warning is currently covering North East Scotland.

At the weekend, thousands of households were without power across northern England and Scotland, while a staggering 37,000 people remained in the dark.

Hotel employee Clare Stirling-Turnbull, 47, of Powburn, Northumberland, has been without heating and electricity since 9am on Saturday.

Worse still, one of the children in her family of six has Covid and is currently in isolation.

“So we couldn’t go to relatives,” she said. “We don’t have electricity, no heating or hot water – we have a wood-burning stove so we can heat a room.”

Several schools in Aberdeenshire have announced they will close or delay opening today as they face heating and electricity problems.

Cyclone Corrie moved eastward over Scotland on Sunday and is expected to cross the North Sea throughout Monday.

Winds of 92mph were recorded in Stormoway, on the Western Isles, in the early hours of this morning, described by forecasters as “particularly strong”.

Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said: “It is not surprising that there are significant impacts such as power outages and damage to buildings.

“It’s unfortunate that things are worse than that for some people.”
