The Met Office has predicted a range of high winds today with gusts reaching over 40mph as the tail of ‘Storm Ali’ hits the area.

This lunchtime saw this morning’s rubbish and litter being blown around followed by some more serious damage, with trees falling to block roads.

Sarah sent us the below image saying, “his was down on the main road in New Broughton by Ysgol Penrhyn but has now been dealt with extremely swiftly by the council workers… well done lads involved!”

Just before 2pm a tree fell close to Sainsburys on Plas Coch, along with a tree falling on the road up to Brymbo.

Dave sent the below image of the tree being cut up later this afternoon in Brymbo.

Amy told us: “I agree with the trampolines blowing away.. mines in my next door neighbours and everyone else is blowing away😂”

Chvonne sent us this picture of a tree down on Old Mold Road:

Forecasts have the winds due to linger into the evening, with tomorrow bringing heavy rain. The tail of the storm is due to pass later tomorrow, and Friday is due to be a nicer calmer day.
