Strong winds, accompanied by heavy rain, will move eastwards across the UK on Monday. Gales or even severe gales are likely around exposed coasts and high ground in the west and north on Monday morning. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Yellow warnings are in place for parts of north Wales and the north west England as the strong wind and rain lash costal area’s – no weather warnings have been issued for Flintshire. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The Met Office Chief Forecaster’s assessment: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“An area of low pressure will develop just to the northwest of Ireland on Sunday night as warm air from the south and cold air from the north come together. As this develops winds will increase leading to gusts of 60-70 mph around exposed coasts and hills of Wales, northwest England, parts of Northern Ireland (especially the east) and western and northern parts of Scotland. Gusts of 50-60 mph are also expected in the southwest of England. As the system moves eastwards across the UK on Monday the winds will ease away though a further pulse of 60-70 mph gusts is possible over the northeast of Scotland. Given the very strong winds, relatively early seasonal occurrence and their coincidence with Monday’s rush hour some disruption to travel is likely.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
