The Met Office has just updated its warning on what we can expect with the arrival of former #HurricaneGonzalo

Hurricane Gonzalo

The Met Office says the strongest winds are expected to coincide with the morning rush hour in many places. Fallen leaves could impede drainage which will increase the risk of surface water affecting roads, while some damage to trees is possible, given that many are still in full leaf. Gusts exceeding 55 mph are likely in the West Midlands.

The warning to the public is that we should all be aware of the potential for disruption to travel and possible damage to trees. Difficult driving conditions will result, perhaps exacerbated by surface water and spray in places.
