"There's a risk if the low pressure deepens a bit more than we expect at the moment there's even stronger winds developing across western parts of England and Wales".

The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for western parts of the country as the powerful winds approach.

Storm Diana, named by the official Portuguese Meteorological Authority (IPMA), will do away with the current cold spell and bring wetter and windier conditions to the UK. Winds will also turn northwesterly across Northern Ireland later, transferring the main focus to northern areas here.

Rain is also being predicted to fall, with the strongest downpours predicted to be during the morning rush hour, but it should still remain quite warm for the time of year, with temperatures hovering between 10 and 12 degrees.

"Rain and the strongest winds will gradually retreat to the North East".
