The Met Office has issued a weather warning for strong winds as Storm Eleanor sweeps into the region today (Tuesday).

The forecaster said that public transport could be affected and power cuts were also possible as “very strong winds” hit Cambridgeshire on Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning.

A yellow weather warning has been issued, which will run from 6pm tonight until 6pm tomorrow.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: “Storm Eleanor will bring very strong winds later Tuesday, continuing overnight and on Wednesday.

“Public transport may be disrupted or cancelled and some bridges are likely to be closed. Power cuts and disruption to other services (mobile phones for example) may also occur, while injuries from flying debris are possible.”

The spokesman added: “Throughout this period, gusts of 60-70 mph are likely along exposed coasts, with the more exposed locations seeing gusts close to 80 mph. Inland gusts exceeding 60 mph are possible.”
