The Met Office says that there is a chance of a deep low-pressure system bringing gusts of 70 to 80 mph to northern parts of the UK on Wednesday.

However, the weather forecaster has said that the most likely scenario is for gusts to reach 55 to 65 mph within parts of the warning area.

This is most likely over the northern Irish Sea and parts of eastern Scotland, bringing some more localised impacts.

Heavy rain may also prove an additional hazard across northwestern areas.
