Conwy, Denbighshire, Gwynedd, Isle of Anglesey and Wrexham are all effected by the warning.
The animated jetstream map shows a vigorous depression running eastwards which in turn will bring the strong winds highlighted by the pink in the centre of the red jetstream.
A Yellow alert means that you should plan ahead thinking about possible travel delays, or the disruption of your day to day activities.
The Met Office is monitoring the developing weather situation and Yellow means keep an eye on the latest forecast and be aware that the weather may change or worsen, leading to disruption of your plans in the next few days.
The met office Chief Forecaster’s says:
“Another very vigorous depression is likely to develop across the Atlantic in conjunction with the very strong jet stream, passing to the north of Scotland on Saturday. This depression will probably be a larger system than Friday’s and the area at risk from disruptive winds may well be larger, with northern England and north Wales also at risk.
There remains some uncertainty in the extent of the disruptive conditions so the public should monitor the website for updates which are likely in the coming days.”
