Monday – Worth keeping an eye on for some strong winds on Monday gusting 50 to 60 mph possibly reaching 65 mph. At this stage, no warnings have been issued. A little lower than normal for wind then you would see a warning but could well bring the strongest of the wind speeds of this Autmn / Winter so far.
