Yellow weather warning of wind on Wednesday

We have received a weather warning from our friends in the Met Office - please take care if you have to be out and about. It reads:

"A small but rather vigorous low centre will track NE’wards across the far NW of the UK, in turn bringing a spell of locally heavy rain to the Northwest but also a spell of strong, gusty S to SW’ly winds. These winds will be particularly pronounced along exposed sections of Irish Sea coastline and a low impact yellow wind warning has been issued in association with these, (link above). The period of strongest winds currently looks to be between mid/late morning through until around mid-afternoon and, combined with the rain, will make for rough conditions on the roads and in general for anyone based outdoors. Wind gusts of 55 to 65 mph may develop for a time which could bring one or two trees down and enhance leaf fall which itself could hinder drainage of the associated rain. The winds should gradually moderate as the afternoon wears on."
