Weather warning blankets North Wales region as strong winds up to 60mph predicted

GALES are set to sweep across North Wales at the start of next week as the Met Office issue a warning for strong gusts of wind.

The warning comes into force on Tuesday, August 25, at 9am and will last until 3pm the following afternoon, Wednesday.

A Met Office spokesman said: “A spell of strong winds is likely to develop across the southwest of England and Wales on Tuesday morning, before spreading east across other parts of England and Wales overnight, clearing into the North Sea on Wednesday afternoon.

“Gusts of wind are likely to exceed 50mph for quite a few places, with exposed coasts and hills seeing gusts in excess of 60mph.

“Whilst not exceptional, winds this strong are unusual for August, with possible transport disruption and impacts on outdoor activities.”

The Met Office also warn that during strong winds there is potential for some transport delays and disruption as well as some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities affected by spray and/or large waves.

Some short term loss of power and other services is possible.
