Conditions look set to turn blustery across Wrexham this weekend with a yellow weather warning for strong winds issues by the Met Office.

Forecasters say gusts seem likely to reach 50 to 60 mph widely, with 70 to 80 mph possible in coastal locations.

A yellow weather warning will be in force from midnight on Friday and remain in place until 6pm on Saturday.

As a result of the windy weather, forecasters say there could be:

  • Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely
  • There is a slight chance of some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs
  • There is a small chance that some roads and bridges could close
  • There is a slight chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage

A Met Office spokesperson said: “The strongest winds will arrive across northern Scotland during Friday afternoon, before becoming more widespread overnight and into Saturday morning.

“Winds will tend to slowly ease from the north during the afternoon.

“The location and strength of the very strongest winds remains uncertain.

“However, gusts seem likely to reach 50 to 60 mph widely, with 70 to 80 mph possible in coastal locations, particularly in parts of Scotland and north-east England.”
