Wet and windy for Wednesday

Winds will freshen by dawn on Wednesday, ahead of rain pushing in from the southwest.

Despite a slight improvement from the south later in the day an area of rain, heavy at times, will travel north - reaching all areas by lunchtime.

Winds will become stronger as the rain pushes through - especially for the Irish Sea, where gusts could reach gale force.
