A yellow weather warning of wind has been issued for Nottinghamshire by the Met Office.

The warning starts at 8pm tomorrow (Tuesday September 12) and lasts until 10am the following morning (Wednesday September 13).

Very strong winds with speeds of 55-65mph look increasingly likely with wind speeds potentially reaching 75mph in exposed areas.

Longer journey times by road, rail and air are likely with restrictions on roads and bridges expected.

There is also a chance of power cuts and damage to trees and potentially buildings.

The chief forecaster’s assessment said: “The strongest winds are expected to arrive in the west of the region later on Tuesday (September 12) evening and move eastwards overnight.

“There is some uncertainty in peak wind strengths and how quickly winds will ease on Wednesday morning.

“Heavy rain will be an additional hazard, especially in the north of the warning area, resulting in especially difficult driving conditions.

“This warning has been expanded in area and with the likelihood of ‘medium’ impacts increased.”
