Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Paul Gundersen, said: “The strong north-westerly winds will also affect southwest Scotland late on Tuesday, spreading across much of England and Wales through Wednesday.

“Gusts of 50-55mph are likely inland and up to 65mph along western coasts. Winds will gradually ease during the afternoon.”

His colleague Dan Suri added: “Whilst the blustery, cold conditions are a contrast to the type of weather we saw at the end of February, this is fairly typical for early March in the UK.”
