The Met Office has issued a yellow warning of wind for the county today (Tuesday).
The warning, which will remain in place until 7pm tonight, describes strong north-westerly winds with gusts of 50-60mph and isolated gusts of 65-70mph in exposed locations. The scale of alerts goes from green with the least impact, followed by yellow, orange, and then red with the highest impact.
It also predicts that although the wind will ease for a time, the weather will remain very gusty throughout the day, particularly close to rain showers.
It advises people to be aware of the risk of damage caused by the winds and to be prepared for minor disruption to travel.
