As part of the yellow warning, the Met Office said large waves would pose a "danger to life" along coastal areas in south-west England and Wales on Thursday.

The Met Office said: "A very unsettled spell of weather is expected, with strong winds, combined with widespread and in places heavy rain".

He said: "We have a yellow warning for wind in the west of the United Kingdom for today and tomorrow". Within the warning area expect gusts of 60mph.

The rain will turn heavy and persistent across the Pennines later, with temperatures reaching a maximum of 7°C.

"In either case, winds will moderate by late morning across western England and Wales, then by mid afternoon across northern England and southeast Scotland".

"A Status Orange weather warning is likely to be issued as more disturbed weather is expected for Wednesday". With that, there will be some heavy bursts of rain.

Diana will ravage the United Kingdom over the next couple of days, bringing gale-force winds to coastal areas and up two inches of rain in upland areas.

Rain is also being predicted to fall, with the strongest downpours predicted to be during the morning rush hour, but it should still remain quite warm for the time of year, with temperatures hovering between 10 and 12 degrees.

"Thursday will be wet and very windy again for most, though Northern Ireland and northern Scotland will be spared the worst of it".
