Weather this weekend with arrival of Storm Ciara - RAC comment

As a result of Met Office weather warnings in force this weekend for strong winds and heavy rain with the arrival of Storm Ciara, Ben Aldous, RAC patrol of the year, said:

“Drivers will need to take extreme care with the strong winds forecast for this weekend, especially on coastal or exposed routes. Combine the strength of the wind with heavy showers, and you have a recipe for some treacherous driving conditions.

"We strongly recommend drivers reduce their speed and leave plenty of space between their vehicle and those around them, and be particular careful when passing high-sided vehicles when the potential for strong cross-winds could blow them off course. Drivers in rural areas should be particularly cautious of falling debris.”
