Weather warning issued for strong winds affecting Northern Ireland

The Met Office have issued a yellow weather warning today for Northern Ireland stating strong winds may bring some disruption to transport and infrastructure.

The warning is effective from 15:00 today, Thursday 12th, to 03:00 tomorrow morning, Friday 13th January.

A Met Office spokesperson commented:

"Winds will increase from the west during Thursday afternoon, with a period of gales, locally, severe gales developing across Northern Ireland during the evening.

"Winds will then strengthen through the Irish Sea and affect coasts of northwest England and northwest Wales before easing across all areas through the early hours of Friday morning.

"Gusts of 45-55 mph are likely for many, with 65-70 mph gusts possible for exposed coasts and hills.

"As well as the strong winds, some heavy showers are likely, making for some difficult travelling conditions. Large waves could be an additional hazard."
