The warning for wind is in effect from 5am until 10am on Tuesday and is for Blackpool, Cheshire West and Chester, Lancashire, Merseyside, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd and the Isle of Anglesey.

The Met Office warn some very gusty winds are likely on Tuesday morning in association with heavy rain over the North Wales coast and around Liverpool Bay.

Gusts of 55 to 65 mph are possible in places.

A further weather warning is in place on Thursday for rain as periods of rain are expected to become widespread and locally heavy across parts of England and Wales through Thursday.

Over western areas, particularly the higher ground of Wales, some snow is also likely, with local accumulations of a few centimetres possible.

Rainfall totals of 15 to 30 mm (0.59 to 1.1 inches) are likely, with some spots, particularly higher ground, seeing isolated totals of 40 to 60 mm (1.5 to 2.3 inches).

From Thursday to Saturday, there will be wintry showers in the north over hills.

The Met Office warns it will remain cold, and the lowest temperature this autumn has already been reached - hitting -7.5C in Altnaharra, Scotland.
