Local News | Severe Weather Wind Warning Issued for Monday and Tuesday

Strong to gale force winds with gusts to 40 to 50 mph in places will continue to affect parts of the UK again today – indeed gusts could reach around 55 mph in a few exposed sites. Given the unseasonable nature of the winds, the public should be aware of the potential for localised disruption to transport and outdoor activities, while damage to some trees remains possible.

An unseasonably windy spell is likely across many parts of the UK later on Monday, overnight and well into Tuesday, as active frontal systems sweep across the UK. An initial swathe of southerly gales will move east across many parts later on Monday, giving gusts to 50 mph widely but 60-65 mph across exposed Irish Sea and perhaps some English Channel coasts.

Winds will become west or southwesterly on Tuesday, with further gales in places, before gradually easing later. Heavy rain will accompany the strong winds at times. Given the unseasonable nature of the winds, the public should be aware of the potential for disruption to transport and outdoor activities. Damage to some trees seems likely, given that they are in full leaf.

Residents in the area are advised to secure outside belongings.
