Met-Office Warning For Possibly "Significantly Disruptive" Winds on Wednesday

The Met-Office has issued an early Yellow warning ahead of a deep area of low pressure expected to cross the UK on Wednesday.

The Met-Office has issued the following Yellow Warning:

Valid from 10:00 Wednesday until 07:00 Thursday

"A spell of strong winds is expected to move northeast through Wednesday, with a small chance that they could be significantly disruptive."

"A deep area of low pressure is expected to approach southwest Ireland early on Wednesday and track across northern parts of the UK before clearing early Thursday. There is some uncertainty on the precise track and depth of the low, however, the most likely outcome at present is for a wide swathe of 50 to 60 mph gusts to affect inland areas, perhaps locally stronger over and to the lee of hills in the north. Some Irish Sea coasts could see gusts of 65 to 75 mph, with a small chance of 80 mph gusts on the most exposed coasts and headlands."
