Gusts of up to 70mph could hit the Vale on Friday

GUSTS of up to 70mph could hit the Vale on Friday (February 3) as the Met Office issues a yellow warning urging residents to be prepared.

A number of low pressure systems due to reach the UK later this week could lead to strong winds of 60mph to 70mph in Worcestershire.

However, there still remains some uncertainty over the potential impact of such strong gusts.

But the Met Office has said if the gusts do reach the speeds being warned about then it could lead to trees and buildings being damaged, as well as possible disruption to power supplies.

The Met Office’s Chief Forecaster said: “A number of potentially vigorous low pressure systems are likely to move quickly towards northwest Europe later this week. One of these, on Friday, may affect parts of southern parts of the UK.

“However it is worth stressing that there are a number of scenarios in which the strongest winds miss the UK altogether. Even so, spells of wet and windy weather will be affecting many areas later this week.”
