SEVERE gales are expected to cause disruption as the Met Office issues a Yellow Warning for Powys.

The warning covers from 3pm December 8, to 9am on Monday, December 9

A Met Office spokesperson warned: "A deep area of low pressure is expected to cross the UK from the west on Sunday and Monday bringing very strong winds to parts of the west.

"Winds are expected to gust to 50-60mph inland, and perhaps 70mph around some coasts. Large coastal waves are also expected."

What to expect:

• Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely

• Probably some bus and train services affected, with some journeys taking longer

• Some short term loss of power and other services is possible

• It’s likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves

• Some damage to temporary structures is possible.
