A YELLOW weather warning for strong winds has been issued for the Isle of Wight.

The IW Met Service is warning of heavy and squally bands of showery rain moving across the Island from the west tomorrow morning (Thursday), and the first half of the afternoon.

In and around the heaviest showers, we are likely to see some very strong wind gusts, potentially as high as 70-75mph locally, said local forecaster Jamie Russell. 

The warning is active from 10am tomorrow (Thursday) until 4pm. 

What to expect:

• Falling tree debris such as twigs, branches and perhaps even the odd downed tree.
• Dangerous driving conditions across the more elevated or exposed routes.
• Delays or cancellations to public transport, especially cross-Solent travel.
