The Environment Agency have today put a flood alert in place for Bridlington Harbour.

This alert is in force for the high tide this afternoon between 12 noon and 6pm, and for the early morning tomorrow between 1am and 6:30am.

This is because of onshore wind and waves that will cause spray over both north pier and south pier.

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for the Yorkshire and Humber Region.

Strong southerly winds are expected to veer westerly this afternoon and increase further, with gales likely inland and severe gales possible across exposed coasts and hills.

The public should be aware of the potential for difficult driving conditions and some minor disruption.

A deep area of low pressure is expected to track northeastwards across the Irish Sea and then northern England during Monday afternoon. There is some uncertainty over the track and intensity of this system, but there is the potential for some very strong winds on its southern flank.

Gusts of 50-60 mph are likely inland, whilst gusts of 70-80 mph are possible across exposed locations such as Irish Sea coasts and across the Pennines.
