Yellow weather warning will stay in place until this evening

A yellow weather warning for wind in the region, issued by the Met Office, will remain in place until 7pm tonight, Wednesday January 3.

A statement from the Met Office says: “Strong windows will continue through much of today.

“Storm Eleanor is now over the North Sea and although winds are not expected to be as strong as during Tuesday evening and last night, it has left a swath of strong winds in its wake.

“Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are expected with some journeys taking longer. Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges are also possible, and there is also the potential for some short term loss of power supplies.”
