The Met Office has issued further weather warnings across south Wales across the weekend, which may "hamper recovery efforts" after Storm Eunice.

Strong winds are expected in south Wales and parts of England on Saturday (February 19), with a yellow weather warning for wind in place from 06:00 until 18:00.

The Met Office is warning that further "coastal gusts" could hinder efforts to repair and clean up the damage from Storm Eunice while infrastructure recovery work "may be prolonged."

They are also warning that disruption to roads and bridges could continue.

What to expect on Saturday, February 19

  • There is a small chance that some roads and bridges could close.

  • There is a small chance of longer journey times or cancellations as road, rail, air and ferry services are affected.

  • Infrastructure recovery works resulting from Storm Eunice could also be hampered, i.e. power cuts may be prolonged.

On Sunday (February 20), "very strong winds" are expected across parts of north Wales, particularly coastal areas.

The Met Office has urged the public to be wary of damage to buildings and roofs, and the potential for "injuries and danger to life" to occur "from large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties."

Storm Eunice battered Wales on Friday (January 18) with significant disruption to road and rail still ongoing.
