The remnants of Storm Eunice are still being felt across the capital and the continued windy weather over the weekend will continue to cause disruption for Londoners hoping to travel tomorrow (February 20).
The storm caused chaos on Friday and today (February 19), with trains cancelled for millions. Now, for a third consecutive day, some disruption – albeit less – is expected.
National Rail has revealed that all of its trains will be travelling at a reduced speed due to the yellow weather warning in place across the UK tomorrow. It said that the weather is still causing problems across the network.
Posting an update on Twitter, a spokesperson said: “A 50 mph speed restriction will be in place across the whole Great Western Railway network throughout Sunday. As a result, a reduced service will be running with late notice delays and cancellations.”

Meanwhile, Transport for London (TfL) is still facing disruption. This is a result of the weather and planned closures. All services were experiencing delays and problems last night (February 19) – apart from the Jubilee, Piccadilly and DLR lines. For more updates for TfL journeys, you can check your line here.
South Western Travel is also experiencing delays and travellers are advised that there will be delays and last-minute cancellations. In a tweet, a spokesperson said: “We strongly advise that you check and re-check your journey before travelling. We recommend that, if possible, you travel later in the day. We’re sorry for the disruption that this is causing and thank you for your patience as we deal with the severe impact of Storm Eunice.”
A yellow warning is in place across parts of the country today (January 19) as well as Sunday and Monday. The latest warning covers Wales and the south coast of England today – excluding London – but will hit the capital on Sunday and Monday.

Met Office chief meteorologist Steve Ramsdale gave an update on the UK weather this weekend: “Winds will decrease from their exceptionally high levels on Friday, but there’s a continued wet and windy theme for many through the weekend.”
He added: “The south will see wet and windy conditions on Saturday, before areas to the north and west, including Northern Ireland, see some more potentially disruptive conditions on Sunday. Weather warnings have been issued but should be checked throughout the weekend for any ongoing updates.”
