The Met Office warn: "A vigorous area of low pressure is likely to cross Northern England on Monday. Strong winds are expected to the south of the low centre with gusts widely 40 to 50 mph, but perhaps as high as 60 mph around some coasts and hills of England and South Wales.

"The winds should gradually ease through Tuesday morning.

"The strong winds will be accompanied by some heavy rain at times."
