“Whilst this weather is not unusual for the time of year, it brings the potential for disruption to transport, tree damage and temporary power cuts,” the Met Office alert says. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Chief Forecaster’s assessment

“An area of low pressure crossing northern UK overnight will bring a swathe of strong winds on its southern flank, clearing latest from eastern areas.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Most of Wales, the Midlands and Northern England will see strong winds overnight. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
