A WEATHER warning for wind has been issued for Herefordshire.

The Met Office said the yellow warning is set to come into force across much of the country, including Herefordshire on Saturday, November 27.

Forecasters at the Met Office said the strongest winds will arrive across northern Scotland during Friday afternoon, before becoming more widespread across Britain overnight and into Saturday morning.

"Winds will tend to slowly ease from the north during the afternoon," the Met Office said.

"The location and strength of the very strongest winds remains uncertain. However, gusts seem likely to reach 50 to 60 mph widely, with 70 to 80 mph possible in coastal locations, particularly in parts of Scotland and north-east England."

The warning will remain in force until 6pm on November 27.
