Local Weather | Gusts of Over 50mph Met Office Warns

South westerly winds will gust to over 50 mph at times on Tuesday 5th May 2015, in Hampshire and other parts of the South, the Met Office have warned today.

The winds will start to pick up at around 9am and should settle down by 7pm.

The Met Office say;

A rather deep and complex area of low pressure will bring windy conditions widely on Tuesday, but these winds will be strongest near the south coast in the morning, then more generally across south west England and parts of South Wales later in the day. Such winds would be quite normal in winter but rather less so (though not exceptional) in May, and with trees well into leaf now, and some extra holiday traffic around, some minor impacts are likely.

The public should be aware that these gusts may cause minor damage to trees, and make travel tricky for the likes of towing vehicles.
