Wind warning of yellow

Yellow warning of wind

Be aware

06:00 on Thursday until 18:00 on Thursday

Some very strong winds are expected during Thursday. Gusts of 50-60 mph are expected widely across the warning area but a small swathe of even stronger winds may develop - most likely across parts of northern England, northern Wales and the north Midlands. Here a short period of gusts of 70 to 80 mph is possible, please refer to separate amber warning. Travel services could be affected including some restrictions on bridges and disruption to ferries. Some damage to buildings is also possible. Heavy rain is also likely through Thursday along with some snow over high ground. These may prove additional hazards.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A developing area of low pressure is expected to move across the UK on Thursday. A period of very strong winds are likely across the warning area with some disruption expected. However a small swathe of very strong winds could cause more widespread disruption across part of the warning area, which is covered by a separate amber warning.
