Flintshire Bridge has remained open during the windy weather sensors on the bridge trigger automatic warnings when winds become hazardous. The Met office say:
“The deep area of low pressure will move away east through today but will maintain a swathe of very strong northwesterly winds across a large part of Britain, before easing this evening. Some of the strongest gusts will occur in association with squally showers, which will bring the additional hazard of hail in places, and some hill snow in the north of the warning region”
