The Met Office has issued a weather warning for North Wales on Monday as the tail end of hurricane Ophelia is expected to hit the UK.
Warmer weather is expected on Monday morning as ‘Ophelia’ drags warm air from the continent with it. Strong winds are expected from 12pm on Monday and the Met Office has warned of a “danger to life from flying debris” with winds of up to 80mph expected in coastal areas.
Between 12:00 Mon 16th and 23:55 Mon 16th
The full warning reads: “A spell of very windy weather is likely on Monday in association with ex-Ophelia.
“Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journeys times and cancellations possible. Power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage.
“Some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs could happen, perhaps leading to injuries and danger to life from flying debris. Coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities may be affected by spray and/or large waves. The warning has been updated to delay the onset time of the strong winds and increase the likelihood of the event occurring.”
