Adverse Weather Warning

9th February 2019 - 11:00


9th February 2019

SP Energy Networks is responsible for the network, which delivers electricity to around 3.3 million homes and businesses across Central & Southern Scotland, Cheshire, Merseyside, North Wales & North Shropshire.

The MET office has issued a yellow weather warning for high winds in Central & Southern Scotland, Cheshire, Merseyside, North Wales & North Shropshire for Saturday 9th February 2019. 

Wind gusts of up to 70mph are expected and this could cause some disruption particularly in coastal communities and North Wales. It is expected that this will lead to travel disruptions especially to high sided vehicles. The wind is expected to decrease from 2pm onwards.

Heavy rain is expected to last until 3pm before moving away from the region. There is a likelihood of localised flooding in some areas during this time.

If you have a powercut call 105 to report it and we will keep you updated by text or voice alert messaging whilst our engineers are working to restore your power.  

During this severe weather we will have extra engineers and call centre staff in place to support restoration efforts as well as deal with any queries you may have.
