Met Office issues yellow weather warning for Northern Ireland

Weather map

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for parts of the UK, including Northern Ireland saying a spell of strong winds is expected mid-week with a "small chance that they could be significantly disruptive".

The warning is effective from 10am on Wednesday 27th to 7am on Thursday 28th September.

A Met Office spokesperson commented:

"A deep area of low pressure is expected to approach southwest Ireland early on Wednesday, and track across northern parts of the UK before clearing early Thursday.

"There is some uncertainty on the precise track and depth of the low, however the most likely outcome at present is for a wide swathe of 50 to 60 mph gusts to affect inland areas, perhaps locally stronger over and to the lee of hills in the north.

"Some Irish Sea coasts could see gusts of 65 to 75 mph, with a small chance of 80 mph gusts on the most exposed coasts and headlands."
