THE tail end of Storm Diana is set to sweep across the north today (Wednesday) with strong winds of up to 70mph in some places.

A yellow warning has been put in place by the Met Office from 9am to midnight.

The warning adds that some delays to public transport are likely and some journey times could take longer. Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges are likely.

Wednesday’s gusts are expected to come alongside heavy rain, aggravating the unsettled conditions.

The Met Office said: “Winds will also turn northwesterly across Northern Ireland later, transferring the main focus to northern areas here. The strong winds will also bring some rough seas and large waves, with some coastal impacts possible.
