A spell of very windy weather is expected during Wednesday, with the west to northwesterly wind likely to gust 60 mph in places, locally 75 mph over high ground.

Some disruption to road travel is likely, including restrictions on bridges.

Chief Forecaster’s Assessment: 

The strongest winds will affect some of the higher level roads, for instance those over the Pennines and the Southern Uplands.

However, the northwesterly winds will also be very strong and gusty at lower levels too, including in areas to the east of high ground.
