Coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities may also be hit by spray and large waves.

The warning is in place from 1am to midday.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "An area of low pressure is expected to track across the far south and southeast of the UK from the south-west on Tuesday morning.

To the south and east of the low centre some unseasonably strong winds are expected, particularly around some coasts and hills. Here gusts may reach 40-50 mph which may lead to damage to temporary structures and transport disruption.

"The strong winds will be accompanied by some heavy showers or rain for a time, before gradually moving north-eastwards and easing from the south-west through Tuesday daytime."
