A warning is in place from 3pm today until midday tomorrow.
Very windy weather is expected for parts of England, Wales and the far south of Scotland, leading to disruption to transport and utilities.

Officials say that road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible.
Some roads and bridges may close as well as the possibility that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage.
Some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs, could also happen.
