The forecasting service described the outlook for tomorrow as the “Bank Holiday Monday horror show”.

Meanwhile, Met Office meteorologist Craig Snell said: “Monday will see a bright start in the east.

"Rain will be moving in from the west in the morning and spread to all parts over the course of the day.

"The rain will be accompanied by strong winds.

"It will be blustery for everyone but especially the south coast where we do have a yellow weather warning.

"Expect some localised transport disruption and tents and temporary structures could be liable to be blown away if they are not secured properly.

"It will be a wet and windy day for some of us and remain quite cold.

"In that weather warning area we could see gusts of 40-50mph, maybe even up to 60mph."

In Kent, the Met Office is predicting winds to pick up throughout the day, reaching the mid-40s by 8pm.

Heavy rain is expected from 7pm.

It is expected to arrive slightly later on the south Kent coast, around 8pm, but the wind is expected to be even more severe.

The Met Office is predicting winds of 57mph in areas like Folkestone by midnight.
