Strong winds expected tomorrow as Met Office issues warning

Struggling with the wind at Gordon Castle Highland GamesSTORM Ali is set to bring strong winds to Scotland tomorrow with people on coastal regions and high ground told to be prepared.

Met Office have issued a yellow warning for the wind which means to be aware and to remain vigilant.

Chief forecaster for the Met office Laura Paterson said: “Storm Ali is expected to bring a spell of very strong winds to northern parts of the UK through Wednesday, particularly Northern Ireland, central and southern Scotland and the far northwest of England.

“As this is the first spell of very strong winds of the season, and given that most trees are still in full leaf, we are likely to see some dangerous conditions with falling trees and flying branches and other debris likely. Strong winds will be accompanied by heavy, squally showers.”

Mark McLaughlin, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency’s hydrology duty manager, said: “SEPA is continuing to monitor coastal conditions over the coming days, and will provide further updates as appropriate.

“We would encourage the public to remain vigilant, especially in areas susceptible to flooding and sign up to Floodline on 0345 988 1188 for the most up to date alerts.”
