Wind warning of yellow

Yellow warning of wind

Be aware

Valid from 07:00 on Saturday until 18:00 on Saturday

Winds will strengthen during Saturday morning to bring gales to many locations. The swathe of strongest winds will start in the southwest of the warning region during the early morning before transferring northeastwards through the day. Gust speeds are expected to reach 55-60mph, with more exposed locations seeing some gusts of 65mph. The public should be aware of the potential for some localised travel disruption.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A deepening area of low pressure will move northeastwards from the Atlantic through Friday night and Saturday with a swathe of strong winds around its southern flank. There is some uncertainty over the intensity of this system and therefore also the peak wind speeds, but latest indications are that the north of Northern Ireland, much of Scotland and also parts of northern England (especially to the east of the Pennines) are most likely to be affected. The winds will moderate from the west during Saturday afternoon, with northeastern Scotland the last place to see winds reduce.

Wind warning of yellow

Yellow warning of wind

Be aware

Valid from 08:00 on Sunday until 14:00 on Sunday

Strong winds will affect many southern areas on Sunday. In particular, severe gales are likely through the Bristol Channel during the morning, with gusts of 60 to 65 mph affecting some coastal areas of South Wales and south west England. The strongest winds will ease again by mid-afternoon. The public should be aware of the risk of disruption to transport.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

Gale force westerly winds will funnel into the Bristol Channel from early on Sunday morning, reaching severe gale force in some coastal areas. Driving conditions may be difficult at times along some exposed routes, especially for caravans and other high-sided vehicles.
