UK weather – Brits to be battered by wind with warnings for two days in a row | The Sun
BRITS are set to be battered by winds with yellow weather warnings set for two days in a row.
The Met Office has warned strong gales are looking to sweep across the south from today – moving west to east and into tomorrow night.
One weather warning is already in place for the west coast – from Bangor to Truro – until 7pm this evening.
Forecasters warn the 12-hours of gales are likely to cause issues inland to Cardiff – and could cause delays to transport.
The Met said: "Possible delays to rail, air and ferry transport due to strong winds
"Some damage to trees or temporary structures such as marquees, tents and inflatables, could occur.
