The Met Office say: “A developing area of low pressure is expected to track across Northern Ireland, northern England and southern Scotland on Saturday.

“On the southern flank of this system, strong winds are expected, the strongest of these are likely to affect coastal and immediately adjacent regions of the west and south of England and Wales.

“Gusts of 50-60 mph are expected quite widely, with some more exposed locations seeing wind gusts of around 70 mph, mainly in coastal areas and just inland.”
