THE MET Office has issued a yellow weather warning for the South West on Sunday for strong winds. 

Between 6am and midnight on January 21, weather experts are predicting a period of strong winds and persistent rainfall which could cause disruption. 

Travel could be disrupted by the conditions. 

A Met Office spokesman said: ‘Whilst there is still some uncertainty as to the exact locations which will see the strongest winds, northern and western areas are likely to be most at risk. 

‘Many inland areas are expected to see gusts of 50 to 60 mph during this period. 

‘Coasts and exposed locations could see gusts of 60 to 70 mph or even higher.’

The Met Office says in these conditions, people should take precautions by checking loose items outside properties such as bins, garden furniture, trampolines, tents, sheds and fences. 

Check road conditions if driving or travelling by public transport. 

If on the coast, stay safe during stormy weather by being aware of large waves. 

Take care if walking near cliffs; know your route and keep dogs on a lead.
