Met Office yellow weather warning map

As January ends, a yellow weather warning has been issued by the Met Office advising of strong winds that are likely to cause some disruption to travel on Wednesday.

The yellow weather warning is effective from 9:00am to 5:00pm tomorrow, Wednesday 31st January.

A Met Office spokesperson commented:

"Strong and blustery southwesterly winds will quickly spread southwards across Scotland on Wednesday, reaching Northern Ireland and northern England by late morning or early afternoon.

"Gusts of 45 to 55 mph are expected widely with a few places - most likely hills and coastal areas - likely to see gusts up to 65 mph.

"During the late morning and early afternoon high gusts will be accompanied by rain, heavy at times before wind starts to slowly ease from the north later. Over western Scotland, these windy conditions will be accompanied by heavy rain at times."
