Weather warning of gales for Northern Ireland

A yellow weather warning has been issued for Northern Ireland on Friday with strong winds expected to bring disruption.

The warning will be in place from 3am on Friday morning to midnight. A weather system will move eastwards across the UK on Friday bringing widespread gales. Inland gusts of 60-70 mph are possible with gusts of 80 mph expected in exposed locations in Northern Ireland.

Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible. Some roads and bridges may also close and there is a slight chance of some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs.

There is a small chance that injuries and danger to life could occur from flying debris, as well as large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.

Power cuts may also occur, with the potential to affect other services.
