Wind gusts

  • Sender: MET Norway
  • Danger increase: Thursday, January 13, 2022, kl.6:00 PM
  • Danger decrease: Friday, January 14, 2022, kl. 8:00 AM

Consequence

Loose items may be taken by the wind. Possibly cancelled departures for ferry, plane, or other transport. Bridges may be closed. Some journeys may have longer travel times. The power supply may be impacted, due to tree(s) falling over. Some roads may be closed due to trees or other objects in the road. Blowing snow at higher altitudes causes reduced visibility and possibly convoys and/or closed roads. The strong wind may cause locally high waves in fjords and lakes.

Advice

Secure loose objects. Avoid unnecessary journeys to exposed places. Follow advice and check status from transport operators. Check road reports (175.no). Be careful in coastal areas. In advance consider measures to limit damage.

Description

Thursday evening and early Friday morning it is expected locally strong wing gusts around 27-30 m/s from west, later veering to northwest, in inner parts of Vestland.
