Met Office warning of high winds for Burnham area in place for today

A weather warning remains in place across the Burnham-On-Sea area and south west as rain and high winds hit.

Trees could fall and coastal areas could be hit by gusts of up to 70mph witg the Met Office warning in place until 6pm tonight (Tuesday).

A Met Office spokesman said: "An unseasonably windy spell is likely across many parts of the UK later into Tuesday, as active frontal systems sweep across the UK. Winds will become west or southwesterly on Tuesday, with further gusts to 40-50 mph more locally, before gradually easing later. Large waves will affect some coasts at times."

"Given the unseasonable nature of the winds, the public should be aware of the potential for disruption to transport and outdoor activities. Damage to some trees seems likely.

"A powerful jet stream stretching across the Atlantic into the UK will steer a number of active weather systems across the UK."
