The Met Office’s hour-by-hour forecast for the city suggests the high winds will peak around 4pm today, Friday, February 18, before gradually easing off during the evening and overnight.

The North East outlook says rain and hill snow first thing will clear away northeastwards to allow a brighter spell to develop during the morning.

Further wintry showers will arrive from the west during the afternoon, with gales developing later in the day.
