Cardiff Airport is braced for disruption this afternoon as Ex-Tropical Hurricane Ophelia hits the UK bringing winds of up to 80mph.
The latest information this morning shows that Ophelia is heading west so will pass along the west coast of Ireland. This has prompted yellow weather warnings for Wales.
Flybe has cancelled its Irish flights between Cardiff and Dublin & Belfast and its flight in from Milan to Cardiff was also cancelled. Eastern Airways has cancelled its service to Anglesey.
While no other cancellations are expected, crosswinds gusting up to 45mph are expected at the airport which may cause delays.
The hurricane is currently coming up from the Azores region and, with sustained wind of 90mph, has been downgraded to a category one hurricane. The storm is expected to weaken further as it travels towards Ireland and the UK.
The advice from airlines is that if you expecting to fly on Monday afternoon then check in as normal but be prepared for some delays. You can view live flight information here.
