A spell of strong winds are forecast for Burnham-On-Sea this weekend, with the Met Office issuing a weather warning for coastal areas.

The strong south-westerly winds are expected to hit between 4am and 11.59pm on Saturday, and may exceed over 70mph.

The Met Office says coastal areas are likely to be affected by large waves, and there is potential for buildings to be flooded.

A spokesman said: “Some transport disruption is likely across the warning area, with delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport. Short term loss of power and other services is also possible.”

The chief forecaster added: “Gusts exceeding 50 mph are expected widely within the warning area, with gusts of around 70 mph along exposed coastal areas. These are expected to coincide with high tides, leading to locally dangerous conditions.”
