Another deep low pressure system has barrelled into us today.

It'll be windy everywhere with gales and damaging gusts -making for challenging conditions if you are having to travel.

There'll be a risk of some disruption with the chance of debris affecting journeys by road and rail and potential flight and ferry delays.

The strongest winds will be across all of Northern England, Isle of Man and Wales - with severe gales here.

Gusts have already topped 100 mph or more across high ground of north-west Wales and the tops of Cumbrian Fells. Damaging gusts in excess of 80 mph have also been recorded at Mumbles (south Wales), Valley (Anglesey) and St Bees Head (Cumbria).

It'll be wet as well as windy with intense, prolonged downpours - horizontal rain as well as the chance of hail and thunder - will make for miserable conditions.

The rain will exacerbate the flood risk in places.

Monday's low pressure system (or storm) brought a more prolonged spell of exceptionally windy weather - the south was worst affected with the strongest gusts.

In the next few hours, it's the turn of the north.
