"Winds will be gale force from the SW with gusts to 50 to 60mph."

On Thursday the storm-like weather will continue with a strong chance of heavy rain from around 6am towards the end of the morning.

Winds will again be strong with gusts of up to 39mph around midday.

It will also be noticeably cooler with top temperatures of 8.C. Saturday and Sunday will be calmer again with milder winds.
