The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for wind for Tuesday.

The warning has been put in place for the Flintshire from 8pm tomorrow evening, Tuesday September 12 to Wedensday morning. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The warning reads:

Strong winds with gusts of 55-60mph, perhaps reaching 70mph in some places, are possible on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Road, rail and air services may be affected with longer journey times and cancellations possible. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Some restriction to roads and bridges are also possible. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

There is a small chance of power cuts, and some damage to buildings, such as tiles blowing off roofs. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Chief Forecaster’s assessment;

“Strong westerly winds will give gusts of 45-50 mph quite widely inland. Gusts of 60 mph are expected along coasts exposed to the west, in particular coasts bordering the Bristol Channel. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Normally winds of this strength would cause very few impacts. However, with trees still being in full leaf, they be more susceptible to damage with resulting debris possibly affecting roads and overhead power supply lines.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

As well as north Wales, weather warnings are also in place for Liverpool, Wirral, Cheshire and many other areas of the north west, some flights out of Liverpool and Manchester could be delayed by the strong winds. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
