Meanwhile, there's still a Status Yellow wind warning in place for the rest of the country valid from 5am on Wednesday until 4pm on the same day.

Winds of 60mph are expected across western regions, but the strongest gusts are predicted in the far north of Scotland, with Shetland bracing for winds of up to 75mph through Wednesday and into Thursday.

"Heavy rain is also likely to affect southern and western England as well as Wales, and following on from recent wet weather this may lead to some very localised surface water flooding".

"There is significant uncertainty over how severe this system will be, but a wet and windy day is expected regardless". Rain will clear the west in the evening and will be heavy at times in the north and northwest.
