Met Office Yellow Warning for Wind

Alert message sent 04/07/2020 11:24:00

Information sent on behalf of Scottish Borders Council

Dear Citizen
The Met Office have issued a 'Yellow Warning' for wind from midnight tonight until 4pm tomorrow. 

Gusts of 50-60mph are expected through tomorrow morning but these are most likely to the east of the Pennines in northern England. Across the warning area in southern Scotland we’re expecting gusts to be more in the range of 40-50mph, the higher values more likely in the eastern borders.  Winds at this time of year, while trees are in full leaf,can cause impacts at levels wouldn’t expect. It’s been recently wet too, which can loosen the ground so it’s worth being vigilant of the potential for some tree damage through tomorrow morning.

In terms of rain, we’re expecting isolated showers through the day today, followed by a spell of more persistent rain through the night and tomorrow morning, in association with the strong winds. Once this clears to the east during the morning, a blustery, showery day will follow tomorrow. Despite the recent wet weather, we’re not currently expecting disruption from the rain this weekend. Next week also looks un-disruptive.
