They forecast showery rain (between 12-18mm overnight) with strong winds, gusting to 68mph.

As the weather front approaches, one of the forecasters said the latest satellite image resembles the look of a hurricane.
“The low pressure area is that huge swirl out to our west. You can see the big mass of rain bearing cloud running ahead of it with showers following in behind (the blobby looking cloud) and a clearer slot towards the centre of the system.”
