Stormy seas set to return today as Met Office warns of 60mph gales

Stormy scenes like these in Burnham-On-Sea could return today (Monday) when high tides combine with more gale force winds.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for strong winds throughout the region and said there remains a risk of flooding.

"Exceptionally high waves are expected, and whilst tides are past their peak of last week, they will still be high, bringing a risk of coastal flooding. The public should be aware of the dangers of waves crashing onshore and over topping shore lines and sea fronts," said a spokesman.

"Strong winds will combine with large waves to bring the risk of coastal flooding. Winds will gust to 60mph or so on coasts, and locally to 70mph, but waves will be larger than usually associated with this strength."

There will be an 11.0m high tide in Burnham today (Monday) at 10.10am followed by a 10.5m high tide at 10.36pm.
