Expect a stormy journey to work, the Met Office has warned, with a severe weather warning in place until 9am this morning (Tuesday 22 November).
The official forecaster said yesterday: “Southwesterly winds will increase on Monday night and into Tuesday morning, bringing gusts of 50mph to 60mph on coasts, with a low risk of 70mph to 80mph.
“Please be aware of the risk of damage to trees and disruption to transport and of large waves coming on to sea fronts.
“A deep low coming north east across England will carry a swathe of strong winds from the English Channel inland.
“Even at this range there is uncertainty about the depth and track of the low and therefore the strength of the winds.”
