“As we head through the evening and overnight the next area of low pressure is going to come our way. The rain will be heavy and the wind is going to continue to strengthen.”

Wednesday will start of pleasant with much of the country expected to be dry and bright for the vast majority of the day.

The fine conditions are down to a ridge of high pressure situated to the north east of the UK which develops these sunny spells.

However, as the day progresses there could be the odd shower in the west and some rain will push towards Northern Ireland and the far west of Scotland in the afternoon.

Meanwhile, further north, figures will struggle to reach 20 degrees Celsius, with Aberdeen expected to be settle at 16 degrees Celsius.

Travel distributions are likely due to rampant winds on Thursday morning and commuters have been advised to check transportation below travelling.
