A yellow weather warning for strong winds is in place for much of England from 12pm tomorrow (January 14).
However, forecasters say winds will strengthen from this afternoon in Nottinghamshire, bringing with it heavy rain – despite a dry and bright start.
Met Office meteorologist Frank Saunders said the UK and Ireland will see increasingly strong winds throughout Monday as the storm, named by Irish forecaster Met Eireann, sweeps in.
