Commuters are being warned about possible disruption to travel, as the strongest winds may coincide with the morning rush hour in some places. Fallen leaves impeding drainage increases the risk of surface water affecting roads, while some damage to trees is possible, given that many are still in full leaf.

The severe weather warning will be in lace from midnight until 6pm on Tuesday.

A Met Office spokesman said: “The remains of Hurricane Gonzalo will run eastwards across the Atlantic, reaching the UK on Monday night, bringing a period of strong winds and heavy rain to the UK.

“The strongest winds are expected on Tuesday. Gusts exceeding 50mph are likely.

“The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel, especially as the strongest winds will coincide with rush-hour in places, and perhaps some damage to trees.

“Difficult driving conditions will result, exacerbated by surface water and spray.

“The public is advised to take extra care.”
