The Met Office are warning of strong overnight winds as Storm Aileen hits the Yorkshire & Humber region.
The Met Office has issued an amber weather warning of “very strong” westerly winds for Yorkshire & Humber, with gusts of 65-75 mph expected during the early hours of Wednesday (13 Sept).
The Chief Forecaster’s assessment reads: “The strongest winds are expected to arrive in the west around midnight and move quickly eastwards, with the worst of the winds likely to affect any one place for 1-2 hours. Gusts of 70-75 mph are most likely over hills and western coasts, but even further east gusts of 60-70 mph are possible”.
The warning, affecting the Thorne area, says damage to trees and perhaps buildings, as well as power cuts are expected.
