STRONG winds are expected to continue into Tuesday morning across the region, with gusts up to 65mph on bank holiday Monday, the Met Office has warned.

The whole of Carmarthenshire and Neath Port Talbot has been included in the yellow warning, with the potential of damage to tree branches and temporary structures across south and west Wales.

The Met Office has warned to expect some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport, which are set to cause disruption to bank holiday travel plans.

Probably some bus and train services will be affected, with some journeys taking longer.

Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges is likely.

Damage to outdoor temporary structures possible, with some tree branches down.

It’s likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves.

Met Office forecaster Ben Rich says that the bad weather is being caused by the area of low pressure coming in from the Atlantic.

He said: "It is the first time we have seen one of these in the UK for quite some time and it will be the wettest weather we have had for quite some time.

"Strong winds as well, particularly gusty on western coasts. We could see gales developing and temperatures are really disappointing for this time of year. Monday is not a great day and the rain will clear away and behind it we get back into some chilly air."

The winds should gradually ease through Tuesday.
