Weather warning for severe gales in Lincolnshire

A severe weather warning has been issued for high speed winds in Lincolnshire by the Met Office, with gales of 50-60 mph predicted.

The yellow warning is valid from 7pm on Monday, March 30 until 7pm on Tuesday, March 31, and affects the whole of Lincolnshire and the surrounding counties.

Westerly winds are expected to become strong across the UK with gusts of 50-60 mph and isolated gusts of 65-70 mph in exposed locations.

The wind is predicted to become northwesterly by Tuesday morning and gusts will be throughout the day, particularly near showers.

The chief forecaster’s assessment is: “A deepening area of low pressure will move east across northern Scotland during Monday evening, bringing strong westerly winds to many parts of Northern Ireland, southern Scotland, England and Wales with gales and locally severe gales in places.

“A cold and showery northwesterly airstream will become established for Tuesday, with powerful gusts in and near showers.

“The public should be aware of the risk of localised damage from these winds and for minor disruption to travel.”
