deepen to the south-west of the UK later on Sunday and then run north-eastwards across England
and Wales on Monday accompanied by some very strong winds, large coastal waves and heavy rain.
“There remains a fair amount of uncertainty over the track and ming of this system, and so where
and when the peaks of strongest winds will occur.
“However, there is a connuing signal for a period of disrupve winds, perhaps now more focused
towards south-eastern parts of England. This alert will be updated on Sunday in light of further
Showers will connue through Tuesday with hail and thunder also possible
