  • Winds of up to 70mph could hit Rotherham

Amber weather warnings for wind have been issued for several areas, including the east of England.

The Met Office says that the heavy rain has the potential to cause flooding on the transport network, with spray and hard driving conditions due to the combination of rain and wind.

A status yellow warning is the lowest level of alert.

A WEATHER warning for eight Irish counties has been extended - as Storm Aileen is set to batter the country with gusts of up to 110km/h.

There is also a chance of power cuts and damage to trees and buildings.

The Met Office say that strong gusts of 55-65mph are expected during the above time period, with winds reaching 75mpg in exposed places.

Wales and the southwest will bear the brunt tomorrow before central and northern England move into the firing line on Tuesday.

This is just one of a series of warnings issued by Met Eireann in the past few days.

Heavy showers are expected throughout Monday and overnight into Tuesday.

"Some restriction to roads and bridges are also possible".

Autumnal weather arrived to parts of Britain today as wind and rain set in during the afternoon.

People are being warned to keep away from sea cliffs, piers and coastal areas.

This will affect coastal counties of the southwest, south and possibly parts of the east coast later.
