A weather warning over high winds in Derry will remain in place tonight.

The high winds have caused traffic disruption throughout today with planes being diverted to land in Belfast and restrictions being placed against high sided vehicles travelling across the Foyle Bridge.

Traffic moved slowly this evening on either side of the bridge with delays being experienced on the Limavady Road area of the Waterside on the approach to Caw roundabout.

As seen in our picture, the severity of the wind has brought down trees in the city with this one falling and blocking the Ardlough Road in the Waterside.

The Met Office says a few light rain showers are possible tonight in County Derry. However, most areas will stay dry with clear periods, leading to a bright start for Tuesday. Strong westerly wind easing down. Minimum Temperature 1C.
