High winds forecast for tonight, tomorrow


A yellow weather warning has been issued by the Met Office for tonight and part of tomorrow (April 26th and 27th), with potential for strong winds and rain.

The alert applies to the period from 9pm this evening until 3pm on Saturday, with gusts of between 60 and 70mph predicted.

The Met Office said that an area of low pressure - named Storm Hannah by the Irish Met Service Met Eireann - will bring strong winds and heavy rain to parts of Britain, especially the South West and parts of south and west Wales.

The winds may result in some short term loss of power and other services due to fallen branches, while "some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities could be affected by spray and/or large waves".

The weather is expected to be unsettled and fairly windy on Saturday, with a fresh to strong westerly wind and outbreaks of showery rain. Both wind and rain will clear as the day goes on.
