The first autumn storm of the season to head for the Anglia region is forecast to hit late on Tuesday. Winds during Storm Barney are forecast to gust up to 70 mph with the power to bring down trees and cause disruption.
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for strong winds for the East of England for late Tuesday afternoon and into the evening.
The video shows a Met Office animated forecast sequence indicating rainfall and pressure. Where the pressure lines are closest together is where the strongest winds are expected to blow.
Storm Barney is the second storm to be named under the "name our storms" project by the Met Office and Met Eireann, which asked the public to suggest names.
Last week, Storm Abigail left more than 20,000 homes without power and schools closed in Shetland and the Western Isles as it swept across Scotland.
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for windy weather across most of the Anglia region on Tuesday afternoon and evening as Storm Barney sweeps in from the Atlantic.
Winds could gust at up to 60-70 mph with the risk of trees being blown down and travel disruption.
"Storm Barney is expected to be a fast moving storm system bringing a few hours of severe gales to southern parts of Britain later tomorrow afternoon and evening. It brings the potential for travel disruption and could bring down trees.
"There remains a good deal of uncertainty in this evolution and particularly the location of the strongest winds in association with wind Storm Barney, so this warning will be kept under review and updated as necessary."
The yellow weather warning is valid from 3pm until 11.30pm on Tuesday 17 November 2015
The Met Office says: "West to southwesterly gales and locally severe gales are likely to sweep eastwards across parts of Wales, southern, central and eastern England later on Tuesday. Gusts could reach 60-70 mph inland."
"Be aware of the risk of disruption to travel and that gusts of this strength could bring down trees and lead to some damage to weakened structures."
"A deepening area of low pressure is likely to track east across southern Ireland and then central parts of the UK during Tuesday afternoon and evening, with a swathe of very strong winds potentially developing on the southern flank of the low."
"At this stage, the worst of the winds are expected to reach West Wales mid to late afternoon, sweeping rapidly eastwards during the evening. There remains a good deal of uncertainty in this evolution and particularly the location of the strongest winds, so this Warning will be kept under review and updated as necessary."
