Yellow Weather Warning

Wind

A spell of very strong winds on Friday could bring some disruption to the region.

A weather system will move eastwards across the UK, bringing widespread gales. Inland gusts of 60-70 mph are possible, with gusts of 80 mph in exposed locations in Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England. There remains some uncertainty in the track of this system and where the strongest winds will occur. Heavy rainfall may be an additional hazard across parts of northern and western Scotland.

What to expect
  • Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible
  • Some roads and bridges may close
  • There is a slight chance of some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs
  • There is a small chance that injuries and danger to life could occur from flying debris, as well as large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties
  • Power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services
