Storm Hannah is set to batter the UK and Ireland today and tomorrow with strong gale force winds and heavy rain.

Temperatures will also plummet by more than 10C just days after Brits sweltered in a record breaking 25C Easter.

New forecast maps seen by Daily Star Online now reveal where and when the miserable weather conditions will hit.

The ravaging storm crossing the Atlantic will make landfall in Ireland – which will bear the brunt of the storm – from midday today.

The country’s Met Office has issued amber warnings as wind gusts are expected to reach a potentially damaging 80mph.

Storm Hannah will then reach south-west England and Wales by 6pm this evening before pushing across England and Wales through the night.

By midnight the storm will be sitting on top of England, with the Met Office warning of 55mph gusts in central and southern parts.

The strong winds and heavy rain will then continue to linger around until Saturday evening when it finally dies out.

The Met Office’s yellow warning for the UK warns of delays to travel and “short term loss of power due to fallen branches”.

Its warning reads: :Strong winds will push from west to east across parts of south Wales and southwest England late Friday, then across parts central southern England through Saturday.

“Gusts of 60-70 mph are likely around exposed coasts of south Wales and southwest England, whilst gusts of 45-55 mph are likely across more inland parts of central and southern England on Saturday.”

Met Office chief forecaster Frank Saunders added: “We’re going to see an unsettled period over the next few days, but the forecast for later next week indicates the return of high pressure, bringing more settled conditions.

“Storm Hannah will move away from the UK during Saturday followed by a transient ridge of high pressure bringing more settled weather to the UK for Sunday, good news for London Marathon runners.”
