Roads information -
The statement adds: "All road users are asked to pay attention to any road signs and temporary arrangements put in place during severe weather.
"Longer journey times or cancellations are possible as road, rail, air and ferry services are affected, with the chance that some roads and bridges could close.
"High-sided vehicles are most affected by windy weather, but strong gusts can also blow a car, cyclist, motorcyclist or horse rider off course. This can happen on open stretches of road exposed to strong cross winds, or when passing bridges or gaps in the hedges.
"In very windy weather a vehicle may be affected by turbulence created by large vehicles. Motorcyclists are particularly affected, so keep well back from them when they are overtaking a high-sided vehicle.
"Motorists are also advised to drive with care due to possible wind-blown debris."
Meanwhile if you're planning to travel by air or sea, you should check with the ferry company or airline in case there are any delays or cancellations.
