If you have any hatches, prepare to batten them down – it’s going to get blowy out.
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for strong winds affecting the northern half of the UK, including all of York and North Yorkshire.
It runs from midnight to 9pm tomorrow (Thursday, 21 December).
Gusts of 70-80 mph could hit, with people warned to expect travel disruption, damage to buildings and power cuts.
Met Office deputy chief meteorologist Helen Caughey, said: “Wind speeds will increase from the north west through Wednesday evening and overnight, so that by Thursday there is a risk of gusts of 50-60mph for a large swathe of central and northern parts of the UK.
“Coastal locations, higher ground, and areas to the east of high ground could see gusts of 70-80mph.
“Due to the scale of the low pressure to the north of the UK, it is possible this event could persist across some areas into Friday.”
