Storm Aileen On The Way
A yellow wind warning has been issued for the East Midlands
Storm Aileen is expected to bring very strong winds with gusts of 50-60 mph on Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning. The worst of the winds, with gusts to 65-75 mph, are expected to be across North Wales, southern parts of Northern England, the North Midlands and Norfolk, for which area a separate Amber warning is being issued.
Longer journey times by road, rail and air are likely, with restrictions on roads and bridges.
There is also a chance of power cuts, and damage to trees and perhaps buildings. Along windward-facing coasts, some wave overtopping is possible.
The storm will bring a brief spell of very strong westerly winds with gusts of 65-75 mph during the early hours of Wednesday where an Amber wind warning has been issued by the MetOffice.
Highways England have also urged drivers to take extra care on motorways and major A roads overnight and tomorrow morning during Storm Aileen.
