Gusts of up to 80mph expected on Friday

There’s a weather warning in place for Northern Ireland for Friday as the Met Office has warned of gales with gusts of up to 80mph.

A weather system will move eastwards across the UK bringing widespread gales.


Inland gusts of 60-70 mph are possible with gusts of 80 mph in exposed locations in Northern Ireland.

Heavy rainfall may be an additional hazard across parts of northern and western Scotland.

Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible.

The Met Office says some roads and bridges may close as a result of the front.

Residents are also warned that there may be damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs.

There is a small chance that injuries and danger to life could occur from flying debris, as well as large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties, it adds.

And householders are being warned that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services.
