Yellow weather warning issued for Rain and Wind

The Met Office have issued two yellow weather warnings for south-west UK for this Friday and Saturday (9th and 10th August). The warnings are for rain on Friday and wind on Saturday.

An area of persistent rain is expected to arrive into the early hours of Friday which will quickly move away on Friday morning to be replaced by scattered thundery showers with gusty winds. Saturday will be very windy with gales and thundery showers. 

The Met Office warn to expect potential impacts which include a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings, and a small chance of fast flowing or deep floodwater causing danger to life. Where flooding occurs there is a slight chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services and spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures. There is a small chance that some communities become cut off by flooded roads.
The wind may cause some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport, with some fallen trees possible. Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges are likely and minor damage to temporary structures, with some outdoor events and activities potentially affected.
