“Winds at this level can be locally damaging in nature and there is a risk of tree damage and power outages.
“Periods of heavy rain can also accompany these gusty winds.
“Any areas caught under a downpour can experience localized flooding problems, especially in areas of low elevation or poor drainage.”
Dan Stroud, Met Office operational meteorologist, also said Express.co.uk the weekend will bring “persistent and at times heavy rains likely to move north-east across the UK”.
He added: “Winds are strengthening in the south and east late Saturday afternoon and evening with coastal gales, gusting to 60-70 mph along the south coast in places.
“The area of organized cloud and locally heavy rain is expected to clear from the north and east on Sunday, but could persist in the far north-east of Scotland for much of the day when it will remain windy for much of the day, again with coastal gales. “
