HIGH winds are expected to return to Lancashire but no severe weather alerts have yet been issued.

The Met Office predicts calm showery weather today.

But tomorrow looks set to bring another Atlantic low pressure system, heralding the arrival of more rain and wind.

A Met Office spokesman said: “There is some uncertainty currently in weather models about how this low pressure will develop as it travels across the Atlantic, however it does look like more rain is due.

“Accompanying this rain will also be some strong winds with the potential for gales in the south, but high winds in the north.

“The windy conditions are expected to have settled by Friday and the day will be bright and breezy with showers, wintry over hills, which should ease later.”
