'HIGH gusty winds' of around 65mph are expected to hit the county tomorrow.

The Met Office has issued the 'yellow' weather warning for wind across the South and South West of England.

The warning is in place from 1am tomorrow morning (Sunday, March 10) until 11am.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: "An area of high winds, including gales or severe gales in coastal areas, will reach south western England and South Wales during the early hours of Sunday and then spread eastwards, wind over southeast England then peaking during Sunday morning.

"The strongest winds will ease later on Sunday morning, but it will remain a blustery day.

"The highest gusts are expected in coastal areas of southwest England where gusts are likely to peak at 55 to 65 mph. Inland, gusts will not be quite as high and will largely peak at 45 to 55 mph."

A further warning has also been issued for Wednesday, where gusts of 55mph are expected from midnight until 3pm.

The spokesman added: "A spell of strong northwesterly winds across Northern Ireland is expected to extend across much of England and Wales through Wednesday.

"Gusts of up to 50-55 mph are likely inland and 65 mph along western coasts.

"Winds will gradually ease during the afternoon."
