Strong and blustery southwesterly winds will quickly spread southwards across Scotland on Wednesday in the early hours, reaching Northern Ireland and northern England by late morning or early afternoon.

Gusts of 45 to 55 mph are expected widely with a few places - most likely hills and coastal areas - are likely to see gusts reaching up to 75 mph with a few places perhaps seeing gusts of up to 85 mph at times.

During the late morning and early afternoon high gusts will be accompanied by rain, heavy at times before wind starts to slowly ease from the north later.

Over western Scotland, these windy conditions will be accompanied by heavy rain with the warning in place until 7pm.
