Pembrokeshire, along with much of the UK, is expected to be hit by very strong winds this evening (Tuesday) and into tomorrow.

The Met Office has put a yellow 'be aware' warning in place ahead of Storm Eleanor's arrival.

The warning runs from 6pm this evening to 6pm tomorrow.

The A487 at Newgale will close at 6pm until about 9pm due to the expected high tide, Pembrokeshire County Council has said.

The council added: "We are expecting disruption similar to Storm Brian in November 2017. Flood warnings are expected to be issued for Amroth, Dale and Newgale.

Expected disruption as follows:

Lower Town Fishguard no disruption expected other than high tide overtopping car park

Newgale Overtopping by waves expected and a precautionary road closure will be in place on the A487 from 18:00 tonight until after the tide recedes (around 20:00). However, if there is substantial debris in the road, this will not be cleared until after tomorrow mornings high tide.

Nolton Broad Haven & Little Haven wave overtopping expected and hazards from stones / debris being thrown onto the seafront. Flood Gates at Little Haven will be closed.

Dale Impacts not expected as bad as Storm Brian due to westerly wind, but flood gates will be closed.

Angle Pembroke Dock, Haverfordwest no wave impacts expected due to shelter from the worst of the winds

Cleddau Bridge Closures, partial and full are likely. 

Tenby: should be relatively sheltered.

Saundersfoot: some overtopping likely, but again relatively sheltered.

Wisemans Bridge Amroth: Expect overtopping and debris onto roadways which may lead to road closures.

The Met Office said: "Public transport may be disrupted or canceled and some bridges are likely to be closed.

"Power cuts and disruption to other services (mobile phones for example) may also occur, while injuries from flying debris are possible.

"Combined with a period of high tides, it is likely that some western coastal communities will be affected by large waves and spray, and again there is a chance that injuries and danger to life could occur from large waves, or beach material being thrown on to seafronts and coastal properties."

The Chief Forecaster added: "Throughout this period, gusts of 60-70 mph are likely along exposed coasts, with the more exposed locations seeing gusts close to 80 mph. Inland gusts exceeding 60 mph are possible."
