Yellow warning to affect Southwest England

A yellow weather warning has been declared by the met office for this weekend.

This warning is for Saturday, November 27, from midnight to around 6pm and the regions of Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire and Wiltshire are among those to be affected by it. 

What to expect according to the Met Office

• Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely

• There is a slight chance of some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs

• There is a small chance that some roads and bridges could close

• There is a slight chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage

The strongest winds will arrive across northern Scotland during Friday afternoon, before becoming more widespread overnight and into Saturday morning.

Winds will tend to slowly ease from the north during the afternoon. The location and strength of the very strongest winds remains uncertain. However, gusts seem likely to reach 50 to 60 mph widely, with 70 to 80 mph possible in coastal locations, particularly in parts of Scotland and north-east England.
