As the clear-up operation gets underway following Storm Isha, Bolton is bracing itself for another wind warning.

Storm Jocelyn is now working its way through the region sparking a yellow weather warning, which will stay in place until tomorrow.

Heavy rain is set to batter down on the region with gusts reaching speeds of 48 mph over today and tomorrow.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for Bolton to last until 1pm tomorrow.

Strong winds are still expected today with Storm Jocelyn expected to last until Wednesday.

The storm will bring heavy rain  and temperatures will reach highs of 12 degrees today and nine tomorrow.

Met Office spokesman Stephen Dixon said Tuesday will be another wet day before windspeeds start to pick up towards the evening.

“Tuesday will be quite a wet day for many people with a rain front bringing the chance of disruption,” he said.

“Higher windspeeds will start to develop overnight on Tuesday into Wednesday morning.

“Windspeeds from Storm Jocelyn will be a slight notch down from Storm Isha, but with the clean-up still under way, more disruption is likely.”

It comes after Storm Isha wreaked havoc in Bolton with fallen trees, overturned bins and debris found in roads.

Belmont tree surgeons were out yesterday felling trees that were at severe risk of falling down due to the heavy winds.

In pictures, one tree could be seen at a slanted angle and another’s roots had come up.

Tree surgeon, Mark Taberner of Belmont Tree Surgeons, advised people on how to spot dangerous trees that were at risk of falling.

He said: “If a tree is swaying at the base, then it could blow over.

"We have had so much wet weather that the ground is very saturated, and this makes trees sway like this."

Tens of thousands of homes suffered power cuts due to Storm Isha and Electricity North West said they were working to restore power to people’s homes in the region.

Fallen trees, branches and debris have caused widespread damage, with continuing high winds hampering restoration efforts for the last 4,000 properties.

Mark Mercer, Electricity North West’s network systems manager, said: “We’re focused on completing the work to get everyone back on as soon as possible.

“I’d like to thank our teams for their efforts so far and thank everyone affected for their patience and understanding while we make these repairs.”
