The Met Office has issued a weather warning for strong winds tomorrow in Calderdale.

The yellow “be aware” warning for Yorkshire and the Humber is vail from 12.05am tomorrow (Wednesday) to 6am on Thursday.

A Met Office spokesperson said: “Gales, severe at times, are likely to affect central and northern parts of Britain during Wednesday and at first on Thursday with a period of storm force winds for parts of Western and Northern Scotland (for which a separate Amber warning is in force).

“Waves will be unusually high, bringing the risk of localised flooding of roads and causeways, particularly in western and northern Scotland and northern coasts of Northern Ireland. Frequent wintry showers will also bring an additional hazard, mainly over higher ground.”

The spokesperson said the public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel and perhaps also power supplies.
