Weather: Northern Ireland braced for heavy rain and strong winds

A yellow weather warning of wind has been issued for Northern Ireland.

Co Antrim will be the most affected area on Monday. The all-day warning is in place from the early hours of Monday morning until the end of the day.

Spells of heavy rain are likely to reach western Britain on Saturday and may become persistent over high ground by the early hours of Sunday, clearing southeastwards later on Sunday.

It will be followed by strong west or northwest winds in northern areas of the UK on Monday.

The Met Office says some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely.

"Some bus and train journeys may be affected with some journeys taking longer. Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges are likely. Some short term interruptions to power supplies are possible," the Met Office said.

Strong winds are likely at times, with gusts of 40-50 mph in places, particularly coasts and high ground where 60 mph gusts are possible.
