Met office weather warning: 60-70mph winds

An area of low pressure is developing in the Atlantic (storm Barney) and will move across northern parts of the UK later tomorrow (Tuesday). As a result the wind over the East of England will strengthen significantly and for a short time it will be very strong as the low pressure steadily crosses to the north during the late part of Tuesday afternoon and evening before heading off out to sea tomorrow night. Accompanying the wind will be outbreaks of rain but this will move through quickly driven by the wind.

Highest gusts are likely to be in the region of 60 to 70 mph blowing from the west or northwest.

Driving is likely to be a challenge and there will be some impacts such as trees being blown down, loose slates becoming dislodged, rubbish being blown around, light garden furniture being lifted.

Looking further ahead there is the potential for a northerly wind to set in towards the weekend and this will definitely give a bite to the air with temperatures significantly lower than we have seen recently
