Winds of over 60 mph are forecast to hit by Thursday morning, which could create dangerous coastal conditions on Merseyside.

The Met office have warned the region that strong winds could cause danger to life large waves at our coasts.

The forecaster warns “Injuries and danger to life could occur from large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.

The warning adds “A weather system will move northeastwards across the UK on Thursday bringing widespread strong winds.

“Inland gusts of 50 mph are likely with gusts of 60-65 mph in exposed locations around Wales and western England.

“There remains a small chance that this system will intensify as it moves northeastwards bringing even stronger winds to southwest England, Wales and on into northern England and southeast Scotland.

“If this occurs, gusts of 70-80 mph could be seen, mainly in exposed locations, bringing increased likelihood of more significant disruption. In either case, winds will moderate by late morning across western England and Wales, then by mid afternoon across northern England and southeast Scotland.

Heavy rain will also batter the region through Thursday morning which could lead to some flooding in areas.

The Met office say: “Heavy rain is also likely to affect southern and western England as well as Wales, and following on from recent wet weather this may lead to some very localised surface water flooding.”
