The first named storm is set to impact Ireland, the UK, Western Europe and especially Iceland who will suffer a life-threatening situation with a significant amount of snow (100-200 cm) and hurricane-force winds across the northern half of the country tomorrow.

The Icelandic Met Office has issued an orange alert for most of the island with a warning of severe gales. Transport disturbances are likely during the weather and delay in air traffic. Damages due to flying debris are likely and construction workers are encouraged to secure construction sites. Higher sea levels are anticipated due to storm surge with the possibility of small boats being damaged or detached from the dock. People are advised to secure their neighbourhood, fasten loose items and show caution. Travelling is not advised while the weather warning is in effect. Icelandic Met Office
