Potential disruption due to wind
Issued: 12:06 AM Oct. 5, 2022 – EUMETNET - MeteoAlarm
Information on update: Update to reduce warning area across Scotland and remove it from Northern Ireland as risk of very strong winds has decreased. Wind speeds also decreased in further details. There is a chance of a deep low pressure system bringing gusts of 60 to 70 mph to some northern parts of England and Wales, and southern Scotland on Wednesday. Should this develop disruption would be expected. However, the most likely scenario is for gusts of 50 to 60 mph, most likely areas adjacent to the northern Irish Sea, parts of southeastern Scotland and high ground within the area which may bring some localised disruption. In addition, heavy rain may prove an additional hazard particularly over southwest Scotland and northwest England.
