Strong winds may cause disruption in the region today (Tuesday, January 14) and tomorrow (Wednesday, January 15).

Yellow weather warnings for wind and rain are active for Friday and Saturday in parts of Wales, northern England and parts of Scotland.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "Gusts of 40 to 50mph are expected quite widely inland, with exposed coasts and hills having gusts of around 60 miles per hour, perhaps locally 70mph".

"The strongest winds are expected around exposed coasts and hills in the west of the United Kingdom".

Gale force winds are forecast for the weekend.

'Inland gusts of 45-55 miles per hour are more likely. A narrow band of squally heavy rain moving east, accompanying the strongest winds, may be an additional hazard'.

A short-term loss of power and other services is possible.

The winds will pick up again earlier on Tuesday with similar speeds of 45 to 55mph reaching as high as 60mph in more exposed areas.
