Winds are expected to strengthen from the west on Saturday morning with strong gusts reaching up to 60 mph in coastal areas at times.

Inland gusts will be less frequent but could still reach 50 to 55 mph, there could be gales, some severe in parts of Wales and England on Sunday, again exposed coastal areas will be most affected.

There is still some uncertainty around Sunday’s weather, the Met Office chief forecaster says:

“A low pressure system is expected to move east to the north of Scotland on Saturday strengthening winds across the UK but particularly across England and Wales.

The winds in association with this are expected to be very gusty and whilst the strongest winds are likely to be around coasts exposed to the westerly or southwesterly winds some strong gusts are also expected inland.

Another low pressure system will run eastwards across southern Scotland on Sunday further strengthening the winds over England and Wales.

There is some uncertainty with the track of the second low and the extent of the gusty winds inland and so this warning is likely to be updated over the weekend.
