Northern Powergrid says it is “ready and prepared” after another weather warning was issued for Bradford district.

The Met Office issued a yellow warning for strong, very gusty winds on Christmas eve. 

It will last from 8am to 10pm on Sunday, December 24.

A yellow weather warning means there could be disruption to journeys, damage to buildings, injuries from debris, and fallen trees. 

It also means there is a chance that power cuts may occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, could be affected.

Northern Powergrid confirmed its teams will be on stand-by and ready to be deployed to affected areas in Yorkshire.

It comes after Storm Pia brought wide-spread disruption to the region earlier this week.

Customers will also receive information on how to be prepared and what to do if they experience a power cut.

A spokesperson for Northern Powergrid said: “This weather front does have the potential to have an impact on the electricity network, so there is a possibility that there could be disruption to power supplies.”

Customers who experience a power cut can report it online by visiting or call 105. 

Reports will help teams locate where the faults are on the network.

If you spot any fallen trees on Northern Powergrid’s power lines/poles or damaged cables due to the strong winds, stay clear and call 105 immediately.

The spokesperson added: “For Priority Services customers, we will ensure those affected receive the extra help they need and peace of mind if there is a power cut and we will contact you to let you know the time your power is likely to be back on, and of any additional help they may be able to provide. 

“We can contact you regardless of the time of day, or night, by text message if we have a mobile phone number for you, or by calling you if we only have a landline number for you.

“Our customer support vehicles and welfare partners are also prepped and ready to go out into local communities, where possible, to offer help on the ground to those who need it most.

“Our teams are on standby and are ready to support customers if the strong winds impact the electricity network.”

If you come across someone you feel needs additional support due to their medical or personal circumstances, they can be registered at or by emailing or calling 0800 169 2996.
