Mr Burkill said: "Many parts of the UK, particularly in the North West, will get off to a wet and windy start."

Two weather warnings are in place for wind across the north of England and southern Scotland, as well as rain across the west of Scotland.

Mr Burkill continued: "In that warning, we talk about rain of between 20mm and 40 mm, and perhaps up to 60 mm across the western part of Scotland.

"The greatest impacts from the winds look to be from southern Scotland, Northern Ireland, northern Wales and northern England, so quite a big patch.

"We can see gusts of 50 to 60 miles per hour up to 70 in parts.

"Despite the wind and rain, it is going to be a remarkably mild day. There will be highs of 13C (55.4F) to 14C (57.2F) and that is quite a few degrees above average."

Mr Burkill added that the worst of the rain will clear over the next two days, but most places will see "quite a drop" in temperature between Tuesday and Wednesday.
