Weather Warning!! –

Yellow Warning of Wind 3rd March

The unsettled spell of weather in the next few days is now expected to produce some particularly strong winds later on Sunday. An area of low pressure (now named Storm Freya) will move eastwards across the UK bringing a spell of wet and very windy weather. Gusts of 55 to 65 mph are likely with possible impacts including…


  • Injuries and danger to life from flying debris
  • Some damage to buildings and trees, such as tiles blown from roofs and fallen branches
  • Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible
  • Some roads and bridges may close
  • Power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage
  • Injuries and danger to life could occur from large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties


The Yellow Warning of Wind (low likelihood, medium impact) is valid from 15:00 Sunday to 06:00 Monday and covers the whole region. The wind and rain is expected to gradually ease during the second half of the night. Monday currently looks like being mostly dry and bright, but further showers and gusty winds can be expected as we go through the week, with temperatures near or a little below normal.
