Strong wind warning issued for Milton Keynes this weekend as temperatures set to drop

The Met Office has said there is potential for a spell of very windy weather across much of the UK during Saturday.

Temperatures are also set to reach freezing by this Thursday.

Last week, the BBC had predicted we may receive light snow towards the end of this week.

The yellow weather warning is in place from 00:00 on Saturday 27th until 18:00.

The Met Office says "gusts seem likely to reach 50 to 60 mph widely".

Travellers should be prepared as there may be some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport and a small chance that some roads and bridges could close.

There is also a slight chance of some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs.

Powercuts are also likely.
