Some bus and train services could be affected, with some journeys taking longer than planned. Some short term loss of power and other services is possible. Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges likely.

The Met Office said: “A depression will move east just to the north of Scotland through Monday and will bring a swath of strong winds to Northern Ireland, Wales and much of England.

“Gusts of between 40 and 45 mph are expected widely inland with isolated gusts as high as 50 to 55 mph on exposed coasts and near to heavier showers.

“This is likely to lead to some disruption and longer journey times. Winds will slowly ease through the evening and first part of Monday night.”
