Strong winds that have affected many parts of the country are due to ease across the weekend before another weather front brings heavy rains and high winds this coming week.
The South West of England and Wales were the worst hit on Friday with gusts of 70mph that caused HM Coastguard and RNLI to urge people to be extra vigilant near the coastlines.
Greg Dewhurst, Met Office forecaster, said that “we have one weather warning over two days, from 9am on Tuesday until 3pm on Wednesday, covering Wales and central southern England.” He said that, with the winds easing, today and tomorrow (Monday) we will see sunshine and showers. Tuesday will see the worst of the weather as rain and gale force winds travel East across the country before clearing to showers on Wednesday.
Mr Dewhurst continued by saying that an area of low pressure will move in from the Atlantic during Monday night and Tuesday morning, hitting the South West first before moving eastwards and clearing through Wednesday.
