But the latest from the Met Office is Storm Brendan looks likely to hit just as it's time to pick them up.

By the time it reaches the north west, forecasters are predicting winds of 45 to 55mph as well as heavy rain. 

At Met Office spokesman added: "A narrow band of squally heavy rain moving east, accompanying the strongest winds, may be an additional hazard."


A yellow warning of wind has also been issued from 12pm tomorrow, Tuesday, to midnight. 

A Met Office spokesman added: "Southwesterly winds are expected to strengthen across much of England and Wales during Tuesday afternoon and evening.

"Gusts of 40 to 50 mph are expected quite widely inland, with exposed coasts and hills having gusts of around 60 mph, perhaps locally 70 mph.

"Heavy rain may be an additional hazard in places. Winds will ease from the west during Tuesday night."
