A spell of very strong winds is likely to develop across the southwest of England and Wales later on Tuesday morning, before spreading east across other parts of England and Wales during the afternoon and evening, clearing into the North Sea on Wednesday morning.

Gusts are likely to reach 55-60 mph for quite a few places, with exposed coasts and hills seeing gusts of around 70 mph. Whilst not exceptional, winds this strong are unusual for August and they will be accompanied by some heavy rain in places, with possible transport disruption and impacts on outdoor activities.

Today:

A cloudy start in the east, with perhaps the odd shower. Otherwise, it will be largely dry with bright or sunny spells throughout the day. Feeling pleasant in the sunshine, with light winds. Maximum temperature 20 °C.

Tonight:

Overnight will be largely dry with clear spells. However, cloud will increase from the west during the early hours, with rain and strengthening winds arriving by dawn. Minimum temperature 11 °C.

Tuesday:

Cloud and rain, locally heavy, will spread northeastwards across all parts during the day, accompanied by strong to gale force winds. Feeling cool in the wind and rain. Maximum temperature 20 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Wet and windy weather clearing eastwards Wednesday, with gales at first. Turning chilly overnight. Cloudy with showery rain, locally heavy, on Thursday. Drier on Friday, but windy and rather cool.
