An active frontal system will bring a spell of heavy rain to parts of North Wales and northern England during Monday evening and into the early hours of Tuesday with 20mm of rain falling and as much as 30-40mm in upland areas exposed to the strong westerly winds.

Westerly winds will become strong across many parts of Northern Ireland, southern Scotland, England and Wales during Monday evening and night, with gusts of 50-60 mph and isolated gusts of 65-70 mph in exposed locations.

The wind will become northwesterly by Tuesday morning, and although easing for a time, it will become very gusty through the day, particularly near showers.

The public should be aware of the risk of localised damage from these winds and for minor disruption to travel.
