Gales, freezing temperatures, ice and fog are set to hit swathes of the UK this week, according to forecasters.

A yellow wind warning is in force for southwest England and South Wales between 6am and 6pm tomorrow, with gusts of up to 65mph on land and up to 80mph in coastal areas.

Two areas of low pressure were set to bring “very wet and windy weather”, Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said.

“We’ve got two areas of low pressure that are coming towards the UK tonight and into tomorrow,” he said.

“The first one is towards the northwest of Northern Ireland and the second one’s coming up in Ireland and southwest England.

“They’re going to bring some very wet and windy weather.”

This includes the risk of very high winds in coastal parts of Cornwall, Devon and South Wales.

Mr Burkill said: “Tomorrow, it’s worth bearing in mind there’s a bit of uncertainty around this, so different models are doing slightly different things with the track of that low pressure.

“Particularly on your coastal parts of Cornwall, Devon and South Wales, there is the risk of some significantly strong winds.”
