In a statement, a spokesman from the Met Office said: ‘Winds will strengthen across central England this morning with gusts widely 45-50 mph developing and a few places seeing gusts around 55 mph.

‘Winds will ease from the west from later in the afternoon.’

Portsmouth is expected to experience across much of Friday morning, with the weather clearing as the city heads into the weekend.

The Met Office issues yellow warnings when it is likely that the weather will cause some low level impacts, including some disruption to travel in a few places.

Many people may be able to continue with their daily routine, but there will be some that will be directly impacted.
