Wirral is bracing its self for high winds and heavy on Saturday as the Met Office issue severe weather warnings for the region.
So far the forecast is looking like Saturday will be a very wet and windy day for all areas of Merseyside. Rain will clear quickly south-eastwards and then turning much colder with sunshine and a maximum temperature of 14C. Sunday will also be windy and cloudy with some rain.
A spokesperson at the Met Office said: “The low will move quickly eastwards on Friday afternoon, but there will be little respite before another rapidly deepening low brings further strong winds later on Friday and through the day on Saturday”.
She added: “This depression will be a larger system than Friday’s and the area at risk from disruptive winds may well be larger, so costal areas of Merseyside and Wirral may be at risk of Gusts of 45-60 mph. The winds should gradually ease from the west later in the day”.
Despite the severe winds, temperatures are expected to remain relatively mild for January and could reach 14C in parts of merseyside.
The public should be aware that that disruption to transport and possibly power supplies could occur.
Due to large amounts of rain, surface spray could pose a danger so reducing speed when visibility is low is advised.
Ferry services could be cancelled so check with your travel provider incase of changes.
Liverpool coastguard warned: “Our advice is keep away from the coastline. The weather is not going to be nice. It’s going to be rainy and cold so it’s not going to be a pleasant weekend. Just stay safe and keep away from those huge waves.”
