MET Office issues Yellow Warning for Wind Today - Risk of Heavy Rain and More Strong Winds Next Week
With further gusts to speeds of around 50mph, the Yellow Warning for Wind remains in place for all parts of the East Midlands until 1800 today. This warning still brings a Medium Likelihood of Low Impacts, which means that:
- some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely
- probably some bus and train services affected, with some journeys taking longer
- delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges likely
- some short term loss of power and other services is possible
- it is likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities are affected by spray and/or large waves
- some damage to trees with debris on roads are possible given the time of year
Winds very slowly ease down during Friday evening, as showers also die away and skies clear.
During Saturday, Sunday and Monday it will very gradually become increasingly less windy than the high winds of Friday, with a mix of sunny spells, scattered showers.
Later on Tuesday and into Wednesday, there are indications that we could see a spell of wet and very windy weather developing across the region.
