The forecast for Lincolnshire is cloudy with sunny intervals and rain this afternoon.

Strong winds are predicted and top temperatures reaching 9 degrees C, falling to zero overnight.

The Met Office amber ‘be prepared’ warning remains in place.

Westerly gales are expected to spread southwards across northern and central areas of the UK, with widespread gusts of 60 to 70 mph.

However within the area of the amber warning, which includes Lincolnshire, gusts are expected to reach 80 mph in places and perhaps as high as 90 mph in exposed parts of the north and west of Scotland.

Winds will veer northwesterly and begin to ease during the afternoon, with the strongest winds becoming confined to eastern coastal areas by the evening.

There is also the potential for significant coastal flooding along the east coast of England.

Communities along the length of the east coast should be braced for the most serious coastal tidal surge for over 30 years.

The Environment Agency and the Met Office are warning that gale-force winds, large waves and a tidal surge caused by low pressure will combine with high tides on Thursday, throughout Friday and to Saturday morning, bringing a risk of significant coastal flooding.
