Warning of gales for East of England

A weather warning for high winds was extended this afternoon to include most of East Anglia.

The Met Office had issued a yellow ‘be aware’ warning of ‘very strong southwesterly winds for the time of year’ for the area west of London but at 3.15pm extended it further east.

Winds are expected to pick up as an area of low pressure moves east from Ireland, across northern England during tomorrow.

The Met Offices said: “Gusts of 50 mph are likely to develop fairly widely inland with gusts of 55-65 mph along exposed coasts in the south and west.

“The public should be aware that some disruption to transport is possible along with possible damage to trees.”
