The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for Wales this weekend.

It has warned of “very windy weather” hitting the region, with the chance of winds as strong as 80mph.

This is what the Met Office is warning residents to expect:

  • Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely
  • There is a slight chance of some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs
  • There is a small chance that some roads and bridges could close
  • There is a slight chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage
