Wind speeds are predicted with gusts between 40-50mph through the day, dropping to 26mph at 20:00.

Overnight the strong gusts could be heard, waking people as the strength of the wind produced powerful whooshing sounds rattling wind panes . There is currently an odd whistling and howling sound as the wind speeds increase intermittently and then drop.

As people woke this morning, there were sudden strong gusts bending plants and trees.

Stay safe in the Bay.
