Storm Ciara sees Met Office issue yellow weather warning for win and rain across the Newark district
A weather warning has been issued for strong winds and heavy rain that are set to hit the district tomorrow.
The yellow warning, issued by the Met Office, starts at midnight tonight and continued throughout Sunday.
It is caused by Storm Ciara, which is currently tracking eastwards towards the UK.
Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Frank Saunders, said:“Storm Ciara will bring damaging winds and heavy rain across the UK this weekend and we have issued a range of severe weather warnings giving people time to prepare for potential impacts of the storm.
“Winds will increase through Saturday across Northern Ireland, Scotland, northern England and Wales, before turning very windy across the rest of UK through the early hours of Sunday morning.Gusts of 50 to 60 mph are expected quite widely across inland areas, with even stronger gusts of 80mph or higher along coastal areas, especially in southeast England and northern Scotland.”
Storm Ciara is expected to bring disruptions that may affect travel and some power supplies.
Looking further ahead, Frank Saunders said:“In the wake of Storm Ciara, it’ll remain unsettled and very windy across the UK and it’ll turn colder with wintry showers and ice an additional hazard, as we head into the new week.”
