WINDY weather warnings for the south of England have been issued by the Met Office.

Blustery weather is expected to hit the UK this evening and through the night, including in the south.

A Met Office spokesman said: ‘Westerly winds will become strong across many parts of Northern Ireland, southern Scotland, England and Wales during Monday evening and night, with gusts of 50-60mph and isolated gusts of 65-70mph 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.’

The Met Office said people should be on alert for strong winds until 7pm on Tuesday.
