STORM Isha is set to sweep through Bradford and the rest of West Yorkshire - with a warning of potential "danger to life".

The Met Office has this morning named the storm, which is expected to bring very strong winds on Sunday and into Monday.

Some parts of the Bradford district - including Bingley and Keighley - are covered by a Met Office amber weather warning for wind, which starts at 6pm on Sunday and ends at 9am the following day.

The whole of West Yorkshire, meanwhile, is covered by a less severe yellow warning for wind between noon on Sunday and noon on Monday. 

According to the Met Office, Storm Isha may bring disruption to travel and utilities.

Injuries and danger to life from flying debris are also possible, the weather agency said. 

The warnings come as the weather will start to turn milder tomorrow after a week of freezing cold conditions for many. 

What the warnings say

The amber alert states: "Very strong south-westerly winds will develop widely across Northern Ireland, western parts of England, Wales and the southern half of Scotland during Sunday evening.

"Gusts will frequently reach 50 to 60mph, perhaps 70mph at times in a few locations, and, along exposed coastal stretches, 80mph is possible at times.

"During the early hours of Monday winds will turn westerly and affect a wider area of southern Scotland and northern England, before easing through the morning."

The yellow warning states: "Strong winds associated with Storm Isha are expected to develop widely across the UK on Sunday, persisting into Monday across parts of England and Wales.

"Within the warning area, many places are likely to see southwesterly winds gust to around 50 to 60mph and gusts may reach 60 to 70mph for exposed locations (for example, coasts).

"There remains a chance of stronger winds impacting parts of this area for a time but this aspect remains uncertain with further updates to the warning to be expected over the coming days."
