The warning is in place from 12 noon tomorrow until 9am Wednesday morning, with damaging gusts of up to 130 km/h.

Ronaldsway Met Office says south to southwest gusts of up to 65mph are expected which could cause disruption, minor damage in places and coastal overtopping in some areas.

The Met Office has issued a snow warning for the north-east.

Heavy rain is also forecast for later on tonight and into tomorrow morning.

"Winds will steadily ease through Wednesday morning".

Gusts of up to 50-55 miles per hour are likely inland and 65 miles per hour along western coasts.

Lasting from 6pm today until 6am on Tuesday, 25mm of rain is expected to accumulate as heavy brain rain turns to squally showers.

This afternoon will be windy, but the gusty westerly winds will gradually decrease.

Another day, another report of extreme weather heading straight for us - this time it's apparently snow, sleet and strong winds, which are set to hit the United Kingdom and send the country into meltdown.

Temperatures are not likely to get much above 10 or 11C - but with the wind chill, this could feel more like 6 to 8C.

As we move away from the powerful gales of Storm Freya, the country can expect to see unsettled weather conditions, with some parts of Scotland and the Pennines set for a spell of hill snow.
