The Chief Forecaster said: "A short period of strong winds is expected to develop during Friday afternoon. Gusts of around 50-60 mph are likely in places, perhaps up to 70 mph in exposed locations. Some disruption to travel is possible.

"The sudden onset of strong, gutsy winds, along with a short period of heavy rainfall, has the potential to lead to difficult driving conditions during Friday afternoon. Exposed coastal routes are likely to be most prone to disruption."
