Gale risks 

The Council has been warned by the National Severe Weather Warning Service that Wales faces a 60% chance of severe gales, which we would urge residents to prepare for.

"The Met Office is forecasting another spell of very windy weatherfrom late on Wednesday 17th January, and through Thursday 18th January. Severe gales are expected across much of England and Wales, possibly extending further north into Northern Ireland and SouthernScotland, with gusts in many parts of around 60-70 miles per hour, and a risk of some gusts exceeding 80 miles per hour, particularly in upland or exposed places. Winds are expected to ease from the west during Thursday afternoon. Some disruption to transport and utilities (power) is expected. This warning will be updated by 1100 on Tuesday 16th January 2007."
