The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for wind


The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for wind across the east of England tomorrow with some coastal areas expected to see gusts of up to 60mph.

The Met Office yellow warning states: “The most likely scenario is for gusts widely in the 50 to 60mph bracket which could affect travel and produce some minor damage.

Dan Holley, forecaster at Weatherquest, said the wind is set to pick up in the late afternoon tomorrow (Friday, February 3).

He said: “We should see gusts of 40-45mph with the odd 50mph gust.

“Exposed coastal areas could see winds of 50-55mph.

Some wet weather is also expected in the region today, especially during the afternoon, when the rain may turn more persistent and rather heavy.

There is also a risk of wind and rain at times over the weekend and into Monday, but there should be some brighter, drier interludes too.
