The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for wind tomorrow. 

High winds are expected to batter the country on Tuesday as Storm Barra meets UK shores.

Gusts of up to 46mph will hit the South West, causing potential travel disruption to some areas of the country. 

The yellow warning is in place from 9am until midnight Tuesday, where the weather is to calm but will remain relatively breezy, with wind gusts at around 35mph.

The storm is caused by a deep area of low pressure moving in from the Atlantic.
