Blustery start to the week

Make the most of today’s blue skies! The Met Office has issued weather warnings for wind fr Cornwall and Devon (along with many other places) on Monday and Tuesday.

An area of very strong winds will move eastwards across the UK through Monday, clearing eastwards overnight. The strongest winds are expected around exposed coasts and hills. Here gusts of 60-70 mph are likely, with a few sites perhaps seeing gusts to 80 mph. Gusts will be lower inland with 45-55 mph likely. A narrow band of squally heavy rain moving east, accompanying the strongest winds, may be an additional hazard.

Strong winds will again develop on Tuesday. Southwesterly winds are expected to strengthen across much of England and Wales during Tuesday afternoon and evening. Gusts of 40 to 50 mph are expected quite widely inland, with exposed coasts and hills having gusts of around 60 mph, perhaps locally 70 mph. Heavy rain may be an additional hazard in places. Winds will ease from the west during Tuesday night.
