Yellow weather warning
Warning details for UK
Strong winds may lead to some disruption on Sunday.
What to expect
- There is a slight chance of some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs
- There is a small chance of longer journey times or cancellations as road, rail, air and ferry services are affected
- There is a small chance that some roads and bridges could close
- There is a slight chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage
- There is a small chance that injuries could occur from large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties
An area of low pressure is expected to develop over the Atlantic and track eastwards across central Scotland during Sunday with strong winds developing across a large swathe of the UK. Gusts of 50-60 mph are most likely over and to the east of high ground, particularly the Pennines which may lead to some travel disruption. With trees in full leaf, fallen branches and damaged trees may cause some localised travel and power disruption. While there is high confidence in the development of the low pressure system, there is the potential for a much deeper system with stronger winds and a risk of severe gales around coasts and through the Central Belt.
