The could mean delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges are likely and that power cuts, along with delays to road, rail and air travel, are also possible.

The weather warning is in place from 9pm on Wednesday

Some bus and train services may also be affected, with journeys taking longer.

The Met Office added that from Wednesday through to Friday, the weather for all of us will be very unsettled with heavy blustery showers, some wintry over the hills, and longer spells of rain.

These will be accompanied by strong to gale-strength winds with severe gales possible over hills.
