Wales is set to be battered by storm force winds this weekend with gusts of up to 70mph.

Storm Atiyah is the first of the season to be named and has triggered a yellow severe weather warning for wind for the west coast of Wales.

The warning is from 3pm on Sunday and currently runs through to 9am on Monday.

The UK is in for an unsettled period of weather with some very strong winds, especially along the west coast.

Gusts of 50-60mph are expected quite widely inland, with up to 70mph gusts around some coastal locations.
