WEATHER WARNING ISSUED FOR ISLAND

35

THE Isle of Wight has this evening been issued with another weather warning from the Met Office.

Forecasters have alerted Islanders of heavy rain and high winds for Sunday 29th April, however it is still unclear at this time of the severity.

The National Weather Service says: “Another vigorous depression is expected to spread heavy rain and strong winds into southern and some central areas of England and Wales on Sunday.

“The public should be aware that this may lead to some impacts in terms of localised flooding given recent wet conditions, and that easterly winds may exceed 50mph in exposed locations, again leading to some impacts, such as fallen branches.”

Keep an eye on Island Echo for all the latest weather reports, photographs and travel updates on Sunday.
