STORM BRENDAN IS SET TO BRING HIGH WINDS AND RAIN ON MONDAY AS THE MET OFFICE ISSUES A YELLOW WARNING

Regional News

Very strong winds and severe gales will impact the region through Monday building into Tuesday. Forecasters are saying that there could be delays to road and rail travel and localised damage.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for parts of the UK including the Northwest.

Gusts as high as 70mph can be expected in some exposed areas, especially on higher ground as the winds grow stronger into Tuesday before subsiding towards the evening.

Heavy rain is expected and it is possible that there could be localised flooding.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Frank Saunders, said:

Quote

 

“The UK and Ireland will turn increasingly windy on Monday, as Storm Brendan approaches, and there'll also be some heavy rain.  It’s going to be particularly windy across the western half of the UK, with gusts reaching 60-70 mph along Irish Sea coastlines, the west of Scotland and perhaps some English Channel coasts - maybe even 80 mph  in a few exposed places. This is likely to cause some disruption to sea, road and air travel.

“As Storm Brendan moves eastwards, strong winds will also develop across eastern parts of the UK, particularly northeast Scotland where there is also a wind warning in place.”

“As well as strong winds, there will be large coastal waves in western areas, so bear this in mind before heading out in these regions.”
