Weather warning over high winds in West Sussex tomorrow


Drivers in West Sussex have been warned by the Met Office that high winds could exceed 50mph tomorrow morning (Friday December 12).

A yellow warning for high winds is in place from 12.10am until 9am. The forecast warns of winds gusting to around 50-60mph, and perhaps up to 70mph near the coast.

The Highways Agency is advising drivers to check conditions along their route before setting out on a journey, and to drive with extra care.

High-sided vehicles are particularly affected by windy weather but strong gusts can blow any vehicle, cyclist, motorcyclist, or horse rider off course.

Open section of roads or structures like bridges are often the most exposed section of roads and can experience strong crosswinds.

Highways Agency teams will be working throughout the night to monitor conditions and clear any incidents quickly and safely.
