STRONG winds and "wintry" showers are set to hit North Wales.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for wind. The warning is in force from just after midnight until 9am tomorrow.

Gusts of 50 to 60mph are "likely" but winds could reach up to 70mph in places. The gust are expected as Storm Georgina strikes - latest forecasts reveal a deep area of low pressure will affect the British Isles Wednesday evening into Thursday.

Storm Georgina is to follow storm Fionn, the seventh name of the 2017/18 storm season. Fionn hit Western Ireland Tuesday night and during the early hours of this morning and parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Northern England were covered by snowfall.

The next storm, named Georgina, is expected to sweep in from the Atlantic overnight.

A chief forecaster assessment at the Met Office said: "There is some uncertainty over the peak gusts, but there is a small chance of winds reaching 70 mph in places - most likely across coastal North Wales and North West England during the middle part of the night and then across parts of Lincolnshire and East Anglia early on Thursday morning."
