Multiple flights have been cancelled across the UK as Storm Kathleen brings strong winds to our shores. This includes Four Aer Lingus flights out of Birmingham Airport.

Two were due to Belfast City and two to Dublin, but they have been cancelled amid the weather warnings. Six flights due to arrive to Birmingham Airport from various places in Ireland were also cancelled this morning.

They are just a few of around 70 flights departing and arriving at UK airports before midday that have already been cancelled. It comes as the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for wind today (Saturday, April 6).

The warning covers the north-west and south-west of England and parts of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, from 8am to 10pm. A further yellow warning for wind has been issued for north-west Scotland on Sunday between 9am and 3pm, with gusts of up to 70mph expected again, according to the Met Office.

And temperatures could reach up to 22C in East Anglia on Saturday as warm air comes in from the continent. Met Office meteorologist Ellie Glaisyer said: “The storm is the reason we are seeing the warmer temperatures, because the location of the storm – situated out towards the west of the UK – is bringing a southerly wind across the UK.

“This is bringing those warmer temperatures from the continent, meaning we are likely to see temperatures reaching 22C.”
