High wind warning issued for Cumbria

AN AMBER warning for high wind has been issued by the Met Office for Cumbria tomorrow.

Gales up to 70mph are being forecast for parts of the North West on Wednesday, with the warning in effect from 10am until 11.50pm.

The Highways Agency has issued a severe weather alert for high-sided vehicles, caravans and motorbikes which are advised to take extra care when travelling due to the increased risk of vehicles being blown over.

Drivers are advised to plan their journey before they set out, and to checking the forecast and road conditions.

The Met Office has also issued a yellow warning for snow overnight in Cumbria, valid until Wednesday 10am.

A Met Office spokesman said: "A vigorous area of low pressure is expected to move northeastwards across northern parts of the UK later on Wednesday, clearing eastwards early on Thursday.

"This is likely to be accompanied by a swathe of southwesterly gales across many areas which may be severe in places. Winds will veer more westerly later on Wednesday."
