Met Office warns of high winds in Burnham-On-Sea area today

The Met Office has issued a weather warning to expect high winds in the Burnham-On-Sea area this afternoon (Friday).

It comes as Storm Barbara moves in from the Atlantic, passing over Scotland during the day - with strong winds forecast in our region.

"A short period of strong winds is expected to develop during Friday afternoon. Gusts of around 50-60 mph are likely in places, perhaps up to 70 mph in exposed locations. Some disruption to travel is possible," says a Met Office spokesman.

"The sudden onset of strong, gusty winds, along with a short period of heavy rainfall, has the potential to lead to difficult driving conditions during Friday afternoon. Exposed coastal routes are likely to be most prone to disruption."
