Northwesterly gales will continue for parts of southern and western Scotland, and for much of Northern Ireland, northern and eastern England and north Wales during Tuesday.

Gusts of 50-60 mph will occur in places, particularly in association with squally showers, and with isolated gusts to around 70 mph in exposed locations in southwest Scotland and along some coastal stretches of Northern Ireland.

The swathe of very strong northwesterly winds should ease this evening.
