Further wind and rain forecast

Met Office forecasters are warning that further very wet and windy weather this week could bring disruption to parts of the UK. Wednesday will see a vigorous low pressure system move in from the west, bringing a band of rain and gales across the country. Around 10-20mm of rain is possible fairly widely with 20-30mm possible in parts of Wales and South West England.

The strongest winds are expected during the afternoon and evening across Wales and northern England. Gusts of 70-80mph and perhaps as high as 90mph are possible around exposed western areas, with 50-60mph generally across inland and southern areas.

These potentially damaging winds could bring down trees and cause disruption to travel and power networks.

In addition, large waves could cause problems around coastal areas.

Below is the latest most likely track of the storm for tomorrow.
