The Met Office says were are in for a “very unsettled spell of weather” over the next couple of days.

A yellow weather warning has been issued with strong winds and heavy rain expected in Flintshire today.

The Met Office said, “Winds are expected to increase from the far southwest early on Wednesday, spreading northeast, with areas adjacent to the Irish Sea most exposed to the south to southeasterly wind.”

”Wind gusts of 60 mph are expected, with a few more exposed locations seeing 70 mph gusts. Winds will also turn west to southwesterly across Northern Ireland and western Scotland later, transferring the main focus for strong winds here, then finally to northern Scotland through the evening.”

“The strong winds will also bring some rough seas and large waves, with some coastal impacts possible. Winds will moderate across the south of the warning area by evening and then across remaining parts overnight.”

Aviation weather warning for Hawarden 

Thursdays Yellow warning states:

“There is a small chance that an intense weather system could quickly travel northeast, bringing a narrow swathe of very strong winds early in the day to parts of southwest England and Wales, followed by north Wales and northern England a little later.

Should this occur, wind gusts of around 80 mph are possible, particularly along exposed coastlines. This would also bring some rough seas, large waves, and possible local coastal impacts. There is significant uncertainty over how severe this system will be, but a wet and windy day is expected regardless.”
