The region woke to extreme winds today as other parts of the country were also affected with severe weather.
Emma Sharples, a forecaster with Weatherquest, said the strongest winds in the county reached 47mph this morning but said the worst was over until the weekend.
'I think we have seen the strongest winds for today which was this morning and that is the strongest winds out of the way for now,' she said.
