The Met Office has issued a weather warning for strong winds across the area tomorrow (Tuesday).

A yellow ‘be aware’ warning said frequent gusts of up to 70mph are likely across West Yorkshire.

The Met Office said: “Very strong winds are likely to affect northern and central parts of the UK from Tuesday night until early Thursday as a deep low pressure system moves slowly eastwards between Scotland and Iceland.

“There remains some uncertainty in the track and depth of this low and therefore in the exact wind strengths and timings, however a period of severe gales over the highlighted area is likely.

“Gusts of 60-70 mph can be expected within the warning area, with 70-80mph in northwestern exposures. Wintry showers could give some significant snow accumulations over high ground.”
