The Met Office has issued a huge yellow weather warning – and people are already commenting on the phallic front’s shape.
The national weather forecaster warns these stiff breezes aroused by Storm Helene, are most likely to bring gales to the west country on Monday and Tuesday.
Wales, Devon and Cornwall look set to get most heavily shafted by the 80mph gales.
The region is right at the base of the column of bad weather, which pushes up through Wales and the Irish Sea, with the yellow weather front’s head poking into South Western Scotland.
This girthy-shaped peril is set to appear over the UK on Monday evening, from 6pm.
The Met Office’s warning reads: “Storm Helene is expected to bring a period of very strong winds to western parts of the UK late Monday and for a time on Tuesday.”

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
