The Met Office has issued a warning that high levels of wind are likely to extend into tomorrow.Advertisement
Preston has been battered by high winds from Storm Barney over the past 24 hours and these are not likely to abate on Wednesday.
They are only expected to ease into the early hours of Thursday morning
The warning states that isolated blasts of between 50-60mph are likely with isolated gusts of 70mph also expected.
Commuters should be aware of potential disruptions to services as this level of wind could bring down trees or cause other damage.
There is also a chance that this could lead to heavy rain with the potential for flooding.
This is a continuation of the wet weather that saw the Ribble burst its banks at Walton-le-Dale.
The chief forecaster for the Met Office said: “Frequent showers or some longer spells of rain may lead to some localised surface water flooding, given the very wet state of the ground.”
