Strong winds are expected to affect the far southwest of England on Sunday, with gusts of 45-55mph quite widely inland, while 60mph are expected on exposed coastlines and hills.
The Met Office has issued a ‘be aware’ yellow weather warning for the strong winds, which will accompanied by a band of rain that may be heavy and persistent at times.
In a statement, the Chief Forecaster said: ‘An area of low pressure is expected to deepen in the southwest approaches overnight Saturday into early Sunday morning, bringing strengthening south to southeasterly winds along with a band of persistent, and at times heavy rainfall.
‘There is currently good confidence in the overall timing and location of the strengthening winds, but less certainty surrounding the location of the heaviest rainfall.
‘Additionally, the strong winds coincide with high spring tides which will lead to some large waves and spray affecting coastal areas exposed to the south.’
The weather warning is valid from 0500 to 1200 on Sun 10 Apr 2016.
