A spell of windy weather is expected to affect western parts of the UK.
What to expect:
- Some delays to public transport are likely, and journey times could take longer;
- Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges likely;
- Some local short term loss of power and other services is possible;
- It’s likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves
A very unsettled spell of weather is expected, with strong winds, combined with widespread and in places heavy rain. Winds are expected to increase from the far southwest early on Wednesday, spreading northeast, with areas adjacent to the Irish Sea most exposed to the
south to southeasterly wind. Wind gusts of 60 mph are expected, with a few more exposed locations seeing 70mph gusts. Winds will also turn west to southwesterly across Northern Ireland and western Scotland later, transferring the main focus for strong winds here, then finally to northern Scotland through the evening. The strong winds will also bring some rough seas and large waves, with some coastal impacts possible. Winds will moderate across the south of the warning area by evening and then across remaining parts overnight.
