Meanwhile, famed weatherman John Kettley says there are "comparisons" with the Great Storm of 1987 as Lincolnshire prepares for heavy rain and high winds this weekend.
Mr Kettley said: "We can chart these events at the end of October throughout history - they are quite common.
"It is certainly one to watch out for, it has been in the charts for several days and pretty well likely to hit many parts of UK.
"It doesn’t look as if we are in the epicentre of it, but it is obviously going to be exposed areas like the top of the Wolds that are affected.
"The east coast is going to be okay in a sense as the winds will be from the south-West and west most of the time.
"There will be the possibility of gusts up to 50 or 60 miles an hour. In those sorts of conditions if people’s gardens sheds are in bad need of repair things will start blowing around.
"There is heavy driving rain connected to it. Trees are still in pretty good leaf and if trees are in good leaf and a bit of rain makes the ground a bit softer, it does mean to say that trees could come down.
"That was the situation in 1987, and there are comparisons with the storm in 1987.
"It could be the worst storm since the Burns day storm of 1990, when that was widespread across the country.
"But we have had intense storms several times in the past 13 years or so."
A prolonged spell of persistent and heavy rainfall is likely to spread across the region during Monday.
The Met Office has issued the area with a yellow weather warning.
The public is being warned to be aware of the potential for surface water flooding.
The weather front, named St Jude Storm, is sweeping in from the Atlantic and will worst affect the south west of the country with 90mph winds expected in Bristol.
