The MET office has issued a yellow weather warning for Lincolnshire for Thursday.

Westerly gales are expected to spread southwards across northern and some central parts of the UK on Thursday, with gusts of 60 to 70 mph possible.

The winds will veer northerly or north-westerly and ease a little later in the day, with the stronger winds becoming confined to the far northeast of the UK by early Friday.

There is a possibility of disruption to travel.

Large waves, high tides and surge may also cause some coastal flooding along the East Coast.

Warm air crossing the Atlantic will encounter very cold arctic air which will cause a low pressure system to develop later on Wednesday.

As this system moves eastwards this is likely to bring very strong westerly winds to northern and central parts of the UK.

As the system moves away east the winds will veer northerly and will bring much colder arctic air southwards across northern areas before easing into Friday.
