The Met Office has issued a yellow warning of wind for Greater London, including Harrow and the South East England region. The warning is set to be in effect from 08:00 to 21:00 on Tuesday, January 2.
Anticipating a spell of very windy weather accompanied by heavy rain in some areas, authorities are cautioning residents about potential travel disruptions.
The advisory highlights the likelihood of delays in road, rail, air, and ferry transport, with possible damage to trees. Commuters should be prepared for potential impacts on bus and train services, leading to extended journey times.
High-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges are expected to experience delays, while there is a possibility of short-term power and service outages. Coastal routes, seafronts, and communities along the coast may be affected by spray and large waves.
Residents are urged to stay updated on the evolving weather conditions and take necessary precautions as the Met Office closely monitors the situation.
The yellow weather warning emphasised the need for heightened awareness and preparedness during this period of potentially adverse weather.
