A Met Office spokesman said: “The remains of Hurricane Gonzalo will run eastwards across the Atlantic, reaching the UK on Monday night, bringing a period of strong winds and heavy rain to the UK.
“The strongest winds are expected on Tuesday. Gusts exceeding 50mph are likely.
“The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel, especially as the strongest winds will coincide with rush-hour in places, and perhaps some damage to trees.
“Difficult driving conditions will result, exacerbated by surface water and spray.
“The public is advised to take extra care.”
Bermudans are currently clearing up after a direct hit from Hurricane Gonzalo downed power lines, damaged buildings and caused flooding on the tiny Atlantic territory.
