Have your say

IT’S a wet and blustery start to the day for the city.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning today with winds expected to reach speeds of up to 45mph in the afternoon.

The adverse weather will hit Portsmouth from 8am, with easterly winds exceeding 30mph – which forecasters say could cause short-term losses to power supplies.

While temperatures sit at 11C, the warning also comes with a 40 per cent chance of rain.

Some peeking sunshine is expected at about midday.
