Storm Aileen will bring strong winds to Wirral overnight

Storm ‘Aileen,' the first storm of the autumn/winter season, is set to bring strong winds to Wirral overnight with possible disruption on rush hour traffic tomorrow morning.

The risk period for disruptive gusts looks set to be between 11pm tonight and 4am tomorrow (Wednesday) morning, possibly bringing 70 to 75mph winds on exposed sections of the coast and over higher ground.

Unsecured structures may suffer from any strong gusts. The knock on effects of the winds, particularly any downed trees, may well run into tomorrow morning’s rush hour, something to bear in mind. Advice is to secure unsecured objects around your home and put your wheelie bin somewhere sheltered if possible.
