The Met Office has reinstated an earlier yellow weather warning for strong winds and heavy rain in Lincolnshire today (Monday) and into Christmas Eve.
Forecasters had only yesterday downgraded an earlier yellow warning for over the same period.
But predicted conditions in the south of Lincolnshire - including Skegness - have worsened, sparking the reintroduction of the warning.
A forecaster for the Met Office said: “Southwesterly gales and locally severe gales will continue across southern and eastern parts of England during Monday night, but are expected to strengthen further across parts of southeast England, in the Amber warning area, during the early hours of Tuesday, with gusts of 65-75 mph inland and 75-85 mph along exposed coasts.
“The winds will ease from the west by morning.
“The public should be prepared for disruption, particularly to travel and for interruptions to power supplies.
“Winds will strengthen further across southeast England during the early hours of Tuesday, with the potential for damaging gusts inland as well as along the coast. The winds will ease quickly from the west before dawn.”
They added that there was also a risk of localised flooding.
Meanwhile, East Midlands Trains is predicting that the weather will lead to disruption along parts of its newtork. Go to www.eastmidlandstrains.co.uk for the latest updates.
