Burnham-On-Sea area braced for 70mph winds today, warns Met Office

Residents in the Burnham-On-Sea area have been warned to be braced for strong winds gusting up to 70mph during today (Sunday).

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for high winds as a storm sweeps in across the area.

A Met Office spokesman said: "A spell of strong winds is expected to spread eastwards across the south of the UK. Gusts of 50 mph are likely quite widely, with 60 mph gusts in places and close to 70 mph at times in the most exposed coastal locations.

"The highest gusts and strongest winds are expected Bristol Channel coastal areas during Sunday morning."

"High winds will also be accompanied by heavy showers, with a chance of hail and thunder, in parts of south Wales and southwest England."

It says that snow is expected to fall further north of our area, but wintry showers are still possible locally during today.
