Strong winds are set to batter Preston and Lancashire during Monday and Tuesday.Advertisement
Gusts of 50mph or more are expected to build during Monday afternoon and some areas in the North West could see wind speeds of up to 65 mph.
The Met Office is calling it “unseasonable nature” and is warning there is likely to be disruption to transport.
The chief forecaster says: “A powerful jet stream stretching across the Atlantic into the UK will steer a number of active weather systems across the UK during Monday and Tuesday.
“One such system will sweep eastwards later on Monday into Monday night, with the windy weather maintained well into Tuesday by a vigorous depression passing northern Scotland. Developments are complex so there is still considerable uncertainty in details of these developments, especially by Tuesday, when it may be less windy across parts of the south.”
The yellow weather warning is in place from 4pm on Monday 1 June to 6pm on Tuesday 2 June.
