Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire issued with yellow warning by Met Office for wind

Due to that wind, any brief patches of showers will pass through the country as we head into the latter part of the afternoon.

Torrential rain and high winds are due to hit Northamptonshire in just a few hours.

A status orange alert is place for Counties Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo where gusts could reach speeds of up to 130km/h.

The warning's valid from noon tomorrow until 9am on Wednesday.

Winds are expected to reach 55mph inland and 65mph along western coasts, with heavy rain also forecast.

This warning kicks in from Tuesday, March 12 at 12:00 to Wednesday, March 13 at 09:00.

The UK Met Office, Met Eireann's weather partner, has shared a video showing the path of the eye of Storm Gareth over Ireland and the UK.

Cloudy and very windy for a time. "A squally cold front will move eastwards across the region between 10:00-14:00, after which both the winds and temperature will drop markedly".

"Eastern areas might start getting some very strong winds by that point, but generally across much of the United Kingdom, it's going to be very windy this morning".

Later in the week, a windy and rainy Thursday is expected to give way to a drier and brighter Friday afternoon, followed by a cloudy Saturday with occasional rain. More rain and a few thunderstorms are possible early Thursday and again Thursday evening but in-between the rains, gusty winds will elevate temperatures to almost 70-degrees.
