Issued at: 11:50 on Friday 19 December 2014

Valid from: 06:00 on Sunday 21 December 2014

Valid to: 18:00 on Monday 22 December 2014

Gales are expected to affect parts of southeast Scotland and northeast England at times during Sunday and Monday. Gusts between 55 and 65 mph seem likely over and to the east of hills.

The public should be aware of the possibility of minor disruption, in particular to road travel.

Chief Forecaster’s Assessment

An area of low pressure near Iceland will bring strengthening winds to many areas. Winds are likely to be particularly gusty over northeastern parts of the UK from Sunday morning, continuing into much of Monday. Given the potential for very strong gusts to the lee of high ground as well as over hills, travelling conditions may be difficult.
