Monday see’s the ‘official’ start of summer, and with it comes a weather warning from the Met Office.

They say some unseasonably windy weather will hit north Wales and many parts of the UK on Monday and overnight into Tuesday.

Active ‘frontal systems’ will sweep across the UK bringing a swathe of southerly gales which will later move east across many parts later on Monday.

Gusts of up to 50 mph are expected with some exposed coastal area’s seeing possible 65mph  gale force winds.

Winds will continue into Tuesday, with further gales in some places but gradually easing later.

Heavy rain will accompany the strong winds at times and large waves may affect some coasts in the west and south.

The Met Office chief weather ‘bof‘ says:

“A powerful jet stream stretching across the Atlantic into the UK will steer a number of active weather systems across the UK during Monday and Tuesday. One such system will sweep eastwards later on Monday into Monday night, with the windy weather maintained well into Tuesday by a vigorous depression passing northern Scotland. Developments are complex so there is still considerable uncertainty in details of these developments, especially by Tuesday, when it may be less windy across parts of the south.”
