# The UK is bracing itself for Storm Gerrit which is set to batter most of the country today, with the central section of the country the only part without weather warnings. Strong winds are due to hit a stretch of the south coast today, which could lead to transport disruptions, as well as possible power cuts. Heavy rain is also expected in Wales and across central and northwest England which could lead to flooding. Northern Ireland is also set for wind and rain, with yellow warnings for rain and snow across much of Scotland, too.
