Met Office warns of severe gales on Tuesday/Wednesday
Here’s what they say:
This is the first warning of disruption due to Severe Gales and Heavy Rain. The Met Office is forecasting a period of very windy and wet weather to affect the UK during Tuesday and Wednesday next week. At this stage, it seems that southern and western coastal areas will see the strongest winds with severe gales and gusts of 60-70mph. The strong winds will be accompanied by periods of heavy rain giving 20-30mm in places, and 50mm or more over western hills. Predicted wind speeds could lead to minor damage in exposed locations and, combined with heavy rain, could cause disruption to outdoor activities.
