THE Met Office has issued a weather warning for wind in the Vale of Glamorgan.

A yellow weather warning for high winds will come into force from 3pm today (May 20) and run until 9pm tomorrow (Friday, May 21).

This windy weather will affect parts of Wales – including the Vale of Glamorgan and Cardiff – and parts of England.

The weather may lead to travel disruption and damage to outdoor structures.

Met Office say: "An unusually deep area of low pressure for the time of year will move slowly eastwards across a central swathe of the UK during Thursday night and Friday.

"In addition to some heavy rain, this low will bring with it a spell of relatively high winds.

"The windiest conditions will start to affect south Wales and southwest England Thursday late afternoon and evening before spreading across southern England Thursday night and early Friday."


They continue: "Inland, gusts up to 45 to 50 mph are expected at times whilst over coasts and hills gusts will reach as much as 55 to 60 mph.

"These high winds then slowly ease from the west later on Friday."

This is what to expect:

  • It’s likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves.
  • Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely.
  • Bus and train services may be affected, with some journeys taking longer.
  • Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges are likely.
  • Some damage to outdoor temporary structures possible, with some tree branches down too.
