Isle of Wight added to second weather warning for wind

THE Met Office has issued another yellow weather warning for wind on the Isle of Wight.

­It will be in force from 9am on Tuesday to 3pm on Wednesday.

The Met Office says the two days will see another likely period of strong winds and gales, with some disruption to transport possible.

A spell of strong winds is likely to develop across the southwest of England on Tuesday morning, before spreading east across other parts of England overnight, clearing into the North Sea on Wednesday afternoon.

Gusts of wind are likely to exceed 50 mph, with exposed coasts and hills seeing gusts in excess of 60 mph.

While not exceptional, winds this strong are unusual for August, with possible transport disruption and impacts on outdoor activities.
