This is the severe weather warning for gales and rain issued by the Met Office for today, so wherever you are today - please take care and be safe, :-

Issued at: 0423 on Wed 12 Feb 2014 Valid from: 1000 on Wed 12 Feb 2014 Valid to: 2350 on Wed 12 Feb 2014

A vigorous area of low pressure is expected to move northeastwards across northern parts of the UK later on Wednesday, clearing eastwards early on Thursday. This is likely to be accompanied by a swathe of southwesterly gales across many areas which may be severe in places. Winds will veer more westerly later on Wednesday.

A first peak in the winds is likely over southern and southwest England around the middle of Wednesday but with the main swathe of even stronger and potentially damaging winds crossing parts of Wales then northern England later in the day.

The public should be prepared for the risk of disruption to transport and possibly also power supplies, in addition, large waves are likely to affect some coasts.

The Met Office has issued an "Amber Warning" for a further period of very strong winds across southern and southeastern counties of England from Friday afternoon, overnight into Saturday morning. Gusts of 70 mph are likely in the Amber warning area with isolated 80 mph gusts possible along most exposed parts of the south coast. Winds will ease from the west during Saturday morning.

The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel as well as trees being uprooted and perhaps damage to buildings. The very strong winds will be accompanied by large waves along the south coast and the public should also be aware of these potentially dangerous conditions and also the possibility of coastal flooding.
