Forecasters have warned the strong gusts may cause some travel disruption which a chance of longer journey times or cancellations as road, rail, air and ferry services are affected.


There is a slight chance of some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs and power cuts could may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage.

There is a small chance that injuries and danger to life could occur from large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.

Some bridges and roads could close as a result of high winds.
