THE UK Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for strong winds this week which could lead to potential disruptions.

Expecting to affect regions across England and Wales, including Wrexham and Flintshire, Storm Debi is anticipated to form in the early hours of Monday morning.

The forecast for Wrexham has predicted heavy rain and strong winds from tonight (November 12) into Monday. Flintshire, Denbighshire, Conwy, Gwynedd and Anglesey are also under alert.

The Met Office is advising residents to prepare for potential disruptions and to stay safe.

Up to 80mph winds are likely to occur on the coast, with possible power cuts, travel disruption and danger to life from flying debris.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "Storm Debi is expected to develop and move across Ireland and northern England on Monday.


"Whilst there is still some uncertainty in the exact track and depth of this low, there is a chance of very strong westerly winds developing along Irish Sea coasts of Wales and northwest England on Monday morning before extending inland during [the] day, slowly easing later.

"There is a chance of 60-65mph gusts developing inland and 70-80mph around coasts, and over some higher ground, such as the Pennines."

The yellow alert will be in place from 4am Monday morning (November 13) until 6pm that same day.
