Warning of disruption as major storm heads towards west Wales coast
11:47am Friday 25th October 2013 in News
Pembrokeshire is in line to take a battering from what could be one of the biggest storms seen in recent years overnight between Sunday and Monday.
The Met Office is warning that the south of the UK is expected to take the brunt of conditions with gusts of more than 80mph expected on exposed coasts.
The current projected path of the storm would take over or very close to Pembrokeshire.
Winds of that strength could bring down trees or cause structural damage, potentially causing transport disruption or power cuts.
Eddy Carroll, Chief Forecaster at the Met Office, said: “This storm doesn’t exist at the moment, but our forecasts models predict it is likely to develop in the west Atlantic on Saturday. Then it’s likely to rapidly intensify just west of the UK late on Sunday before tracking across England and Wales early on Monday.”
Mr Carroll said there was a chance that the storm could change course and avoid the UK, but added: “People should be aware there is a risk of severe weather and significant disruption. With that in mind, people should keep up to date with and act on the advice in our forecasts and warnings as the situation develops.”
The Met Office added that if the storm arrives in line with current predictions, some areas could see their strongest winds for a number of years
