Yellow weather warning for strong winds in place for region

A yellow weather warning for strong winds is in place for the West Midlands from 3pm on Sunday until 6am on Monday as Storm Freya passes through the region.

The Met Office is forecasting an unsettled period with scope for rain and a short spell of very strong winds during the latter part of Sunday afternoon and evening.

Storm Freya is expected to move quite quickly, with forecasters saying the strongest winds are unlikely to persist for more than two to three hours in any one place.

Nonetheless, gusts of up to 50mph or 60mph in places are expected, meaning there may be some travel disruption and possible dangerous conditions late Sunday and into Monday, including fallen trees and loss of power.

People are advised to take extra care if they are out and about, and keep an eye on weather forecasts. The Met Office forecast for Wolverhampton can be found at https://beta.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/forecast/gcq7pt4g5.
