Winds could top 70 – 80mph in some locations, especially coastal areas, the unsettled weather could also mean that we could see the first named storm of 2017.

The Met Office warn that if winds do top 80mph, that this could result in damage to trees and perhaps to buildings, possible disruption to power supplies, as well as delayed travel.

A forecaster at the Met Office says: “A number of potentially vigorous low pressure systems are likely to move quickly towards northwest Europe later this week.

“One of these, on Friday, may affect parts of southern parts of the UK.

“However it is worth stressing that there are a number of scenarios in which the strongest winds miss the UK altogether.

“Even so, spells of wet and windy weather will be affecting many areas later this week”.
