60 mph winds causing disruption

GALE force winds are causing disruption for commuters this morning (Wednesday).

A Met Office yellow ‘be aware’ warning is in place until 11am and there are reports of fallen trees blocking roads in Wombwell.

Forecasters said gusts of up to 60mph have been recorded and disruption to travel was “likely”.

The Met Office said: “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.

“The strongest winds will affect some of the higher level roads, for instance those over the Pennines. However, the northwesterly winds will also be very strong and gusty at lower levels too, including in areas to the east of high ground.”

Snow could also fall overnight on Thursday into Friday morning.
