Yellow warning for wind issued across Ayrshire ahead of more stormy weather!

18:00 on Tuesday until 08:00 on Wednesday


A spell of strong winds is expected later Tuesday, overnight into Wednesday morning.


Combined with a period of high tides, it is likely that some western coastal communities will be affected by large waves and spray, and there is a small chance that injuries and danger to life could occur from large waves and beach material being thrown on to sea fronts, roads and coastal properties.


Power cuts and disruption to other services (mobile phones for example) may occur, and there is a small chance of transport disruption or cancellation of public transport.


Chief Forecaster's assessment


A deepening area of low pressure is expected to track northeastwards across the northern half of the UK. This will most likely bring a spell of very strong winds to Northern Ireland later Tuesday, which will then move northeastwards across parts of southern Scotland and Northern England before clearing into the North Sea early on Wednesday. There is however still a lot of uncertainty over the exact track that the low pressure will take and hence where precisely the strongest winds will be.


Gales with gusts of 60 to 70 mph are likely, whilst some western coastal areas have a chance of seeing gusts of 80 mph.
