“South-westerly winds will pick up once again through the Irish Sea this evening, with gusts of 55-65mph possible across western parts of Scotland and Wales, southwest England and eastern parts of Northern Ireland.
“Along with impacts from strong winds, we’ll see bands of heavy rain and squally showers with the risk of thunder and lightning.”
Met Office weather warnings for wind are in place next week, starting at 9am on Tuesday ending at 3pm on Wednesday.
