Autumn has arrived with the first weather warning of the season issued by the Met Office.
UPDATE 7pm: Checking the latest forecast the high winds are currently due to hit tomorrow evening (Tuesday evening) with 48mph gusts predicted around midnight.
A yellow weather warning is in place from 8pm tomorrow through until 10am on Wednesday morning.
The Met Office say that strong gusts of 55-65mph are expected during the above time period, with winds reaching 75mph in exposed places.
The Chief Forecaster’s assessment adds: “Strong westerly winds will give gusts of 45-50mph quite widely inland. Gusts of 60mph are expected along coasts exposed to the west, in particular coasts bordering the Bristol Channel.
“Normally winds of this strength would cause very few impacts. However, with trees still being in full leaf, they be more susceptible to damage with resulting debris possibly affecting roads and overhead power supply lines.”
