Met Office issues yellow warning for potentially very strong winds

LONDON: The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for “very strong winds” for parts of England on Friday (February 3). Gusts of 60-70 mph are expected in places and there could be damage to trees, buildings and possible disruption to power supplies, as well as delayed travel if such strong winds occur. The warning is in place from 6am on Friday to just before midnight. A Met Office spokesperson said: “A number of potentially vigorous low pressure systems are likely to move quickly towards the northwest of Europe later this week. “One of these, on Friday, may affect parts of southern parts of the UK. “However, it is worth stressing that there are a number of scenarios in which the strongest winds miss the UK altogether. “Even so, spells of wet and windy weather will be affecting many areas later this week.”
