Although the exact timing and intensity of these weather systems remains uncertain, there is potential for strong winds to develop across the west early on Sunday, strengthening further as the weather system tracks eastwards.

If this occurs in parts of East Anglia and South East England, there may be some coastal impacts from large waves, particularly at times of high tide.

Winds should then ease from the west later on Sunday.

This yellow weather warning of wind is currently in place from 9am to 11.59 on Sunday (September 23) for London & South East England and South West England, alongside East Midlands, East of England, Wales, West Midlands and Yorkshire & Humber.
