Storm Debi severe weather warning for Grimsby and Scunthorpe as ‘very strong winds’ feared

Storm Debi could bring “very strong winds” to northern Lincolnshire on Monday, the Met Office has warned.

A severe weather warning is in place from 4am until 6pm on Monday and covers much of the North of England, including the entirety of North East Lincolnshire and North Lincs. The yellow warning means people should be prepared for disruption.

Forecasters warned that the gales had potential to cause “injuries and danger to life from flying debris”. Damage to buildings and disruption to transport could also be possible.


Road closures and power cuts could be on the cards, along with danger from large waves in coastal areas. The storm is expected to move into Great Britain after first striking Ireland.

Jason Kelly, Chief Meteorologist with the Met Office, said: “Storm Debi will develop quickly and bring potentially very strong and damaging winds to parts of the Republic of Ireland, which is why Met Éireann has decided to name the system. The strongest winds are expected to affect parts of the Republic of Ireland early on Monday, possibly coinciding with the morning commute, before then affecting parts of north Wales and northern England into the afternoon.

“Whilst the very strongest winds will have eased somewhat before reaching the UK, we are still expecting some significant impacts and a wind warning has been issued. Additionally, Debi will bring a period of heavy rain to Northern Ireland for which a combined wind and rain warning has been issued.”

Grimsby weather forecast

Heavy rain is forecast throughout the early hours of Monday morning. Brighter spells will follow from mid-morning.

It should be a fine afternoon, but wind speeds will begin to pick up, with gusts topping 50mph by late afternoon. Maximum temperatures will reach 12C, but it will feel colder, around 8C. The rest of the week should see more settled conditions.
