Worst of wind over according to Met
WEATHER experts have said that the worst of the wind is over. Met Office forecasters have said that gusts could drop down to 11mph later today. This comes as winds battered the north-east yesterday. Yesterday the biggest gust was recorded at Peterhead Harbour at 61mph. A spokesman for the Met Office told The Evening Express some of the strongest winds were recorded between 2pm and 3pm. He said: “It will be windy again this morning but it won’t be as bad as the weather warning ends at 9am. “It will continue to be windy across the east coast of Scotland as well.” SEPA warned of potential high waves into today. Strong winds forced the cancellation of the Northlink ferry sailing from Aberdeen to Lerwick last night, as well as the ferry sailing in the other direction which was due to arrive in the Granite City today.
