It has also warned that due to heavy rain experienced at the weekend the predicted rain may result in localised flooding.

Drivers are being warned that spray and flooding on roads will probably make journey time longer.

In the warning, the Met office says: “This wet weather will be accompanied by windy conditions with gusts in exposed coastal locations around 50-65 mph which means that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities may be affected by spray and/or large waves. Inland, gusts will be lower and mainly peak at 40-50 mph.”
