According to the Met Office, the ‘strong winds may cause some disruption’, with delays to public transport services probable. Coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities are likely to be affected by large waves and it is possible that local residents will be affected by short term losses of power and other services.

Across the North West, residents should expect ‘blustery showers, possibly heavy at times with hail’ and the ‘odd rumble of thunder’. There could be wintry conditions over the hills and it will feel ‘noticeably’ more cold than recent days.
