The storm is set to sweep across much of the country on Saturday and into Sunday, with the likelihood of branches being brought down from trees.
The Met Office warning states: “Some travel disruption is likely, with localised problems for high-sided vehicles on prone routes.
“Be advised to drive with care, especially on exposed routes, and be aware of possible debris being blown around.”
The chief forecaster added: “Southwesterly gales are expected, with gusts to around 70 mph possible around exposed coasts and over hills.
“Gusts to the lee side of the mountains in Wales and northern England are also likely to reach similar strengths.
“There is some uncertainty in the inland extent of the strongest winds so this alert will be kept under review and updated as necessary. Be aware that some low level disruption looks likely.”
