Three people died in October when Tropical Storm Ophelia battered every corner of Ireland, bringing down trees and power lines and whipping up 10-meter (30-foot) waves.

While no storm warning is in place, the forecaster says it will be "extremely windy or stormy" on Thursday morning in some places.

A yellow warning of wind was extended for all of England and Wales, most of Northern Ireland and the Scottish Borders until 7pm on Wednesday after an amber warning was put in place for the early hours.

A skier was killed by a falling tree in France, while at least 26 others were injured across the country as tens of thousands of homes lost power.

"With high winds and rain forecast again for tomorrow, further outages can be expected and we wish to remind members of the public to remain alert to damage to the electricity network".

"Strong winds will continue through much of today".

Eleanor is the fourth major storm to hit Europe since December.

As the storm bears down, an arctic air mass will remain entrenched over the eastern two-thirds of the country through the end of the week.

Severe weather warning has been issued for Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall, especially after the chaos Storm Eleanor caused around the region.

Strong winds hit Lancaster and Morecambe last night as Storm Eleanor swept across the UK.

Meteorologist Becky Mitchell warned of the risk of more "violent storm-force gusts" is less likely, but that we could still experience wind speeds of between 70mph and 80mph.

The Met Office warned that although the worst of the storm had passed, strong winds at 45-50 miles per hour inland and greater than 60 miles per hour along the coasts were to be expected.

"Along west-facing coasts, injuries and danger to life is likely from large waves and beach material being thrown onto coastal roads, seafronts and properties".

In Ireland, Eleanor brought heavy rain and winds of up to 155kmh on Tuesday and caused flood damage.

About 3,000 homes across Northern Ireland are still without power on Wednesday while 1,000 homes in England and 300 in Wales are without power as well.
