The Met Office has put a yellow weather warning for wind in place for Lincoln and across much of the country on Sunday as Storm Ciara is expected to cause disruption.
The warning will be in place from midnight until 11.59pm on Sunday, February 9, with Storm Ciara bringing very strong winds and potentially some disruption to travel throughout the day. Warnings for rain will also be put in place for some areas of the country.
There was previously a yellow National Severe Weather Warning for wind for the whole of the UK from 6pm on Saturday evening and all day on Sunday night. However, Saturday’s warning appears to now only be focused on Scotland and Ireland, and some areas of northern England.
The Met Office has issued the following guidance for what to expect during this period:
- Injuries and danger to life from flying debris are possible
- Injuries and danger to life could occur from large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties
- Some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs, could happen
- Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible
- Some roads and bridges may close
- Power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage
Lincoln was also affected by a yellow weather warning for fog on Friday, February 7, but that is due to be lifted at 10am.
