Met Office warns of high winds, heavy rain in Burnham-On-Sea today

Burnham-On-Sea area residents are being warned to expect a spell of stormy weather today (Friday).

The Met Office has issued a warning for strong winds and heavy rain across the region, to include Somerset, during the day and into the early hours of Saturday morning.

Gusts of around have been forecast, and there is the possibility that these could reach 50-60mph along coasts, which is a reduction from the 80mph gusts that were being predicted earlier this week.

The Met Office says the winds could damage trees, buildings and cause travel delays.

"Gales are expected to affect some southern parts of England. The most likely scenario is for inland locations to see a relatively short period of 40-50mph gusts."

"Windward coastal areas will see a longer period of 50-60mph gusts with isolated gusts to 70mph."

"Some travel disruption is possible as well as some trees being brought down. Some heavy rain may also bring surface water issues."
