The warning, issued today, comes into effect from 7am tomorrow (Sunday) and remains in place through until 8pm tomorrow night.

And the winds will be accompanied by very heavy rains at times, which could lead to surface water and make driving conditions difficult.

There have also been warnings about the potential for structural damage as a result of the high winds.

The strongest winds are expected to reach here around dawn, and most areas by the end of the morning, before gradually subsiding from the west during the afternoon and evening.

According to the Met Office, there remains some uncertainty with the track of this low pressure and the precise wind speeds and areas to be affected, with a further update likely on Sunday morning.

Inland, gusts of up to 60mph can be expected and coasted areas could see severe gales in excess of 70mph

“Please be aware of the potential for disruption due to the gales and severe gales,” advises the Met Office.
