Strong winds could cause flying debris, power cuts and a danger to life overnight from Friday into Saturday, the Met Office has warned.
An amber warning for wind has been issued with the forecaster naming the weather system ‘Storm Arwen’ – the first of the winter season.
The Met Office has said roads and bridges could close, power cuts are likely and mobile phone coverage could be knocked out by the extreme weather.
