WEATHER WATCH ISSUED: STRONG WINDS & SNOW
Region: North West England
Valid from: 22:00 (Wednesday 17/1/18)
Valid to: 07:00 ( Thursday 18/1/18)
A yellow weather watch has been issued for STRONG WINDS & SNOW.
Yellow warning remains in place for strong winds although there has been further downgrades on the wind gusts and only the southern half of the region will be affected by the winds. Gusts could reach 65 to 70 mph along the coasts but in general expect 50 to 60 mph elsewhere. Still strong enough for disruption/damage and as such the warning remains in place. In addition to the winds we will see heavy rain along with this developing low, enough to cause surface flooding in places, however, above say 200 – 250m this will fall as snow across the Pennines, higher routes in Cumbria and also northern Lancashire with anything up to 20cm possible.
As ever I’ll monitor the situation closely and update further when necessary so please keep posted across all our social media outlets.
