A vigorous area of low pressure is expected to move northeastwards across northern parts of the UK later today, say the Met Office.

It is expected to bring a swathe of southwesterly gales across many areas which may be severe in places.

A first peak in the winds is likely over southern and southwest England around the middle of Wednesday but with the main swathe of even stronger and potentially damaging winds crossing parts of Wales then northern England later in the day.
