Met Office updates yellow weather warning impacting Northern Ireland

The Met Office have updated a yellow weather warning issued for this week.

Effective from 3pm on Tuesday 11 April until 3am on Wednesday 12 April, the Met Office says the period of strong winds are expected to bring the potential for some disruption later tomorrow, and perhaps into the early hours of Wednesday.

A spokesperson for the Met Office commented:

"A developing area of low pressure running north through the Irish Sea is likely to bring a spell of strong winds, accompanied by some heavy rain, to parts of western England, Wales, the east of Northern Ireland and southwest Scotland.

"Gusts of 45-50 mph are possible inland and perhaps in excess of 60 mph for a time around some Irish Sea coastal areas.

"Winds should ease later in the evening in most areas but southwest Scotland may not see this improvement until the early hours of Wednesday."
