A yellow weather warning has been issued by the Met Office advising of "strong and gusty winds likely leading to some disruption to travel and infrastructure".

A Met Office spokesperson said:

"Strong and gusty southerly winds will develop across parts of Northern Ireland before extending into Scotland through Sunday morning.

"Some difficult travel conditions are expected, for instancei for some roads such as the A1 in Scotland, and the A2 (Antrim Coast Road) in Northern Ireland. As well as strong crosswinds for some routes, there is also a risk of a few trees being blown over.

"Gusts of wind are likely to reach 50-60 mph, locally 70 mph to the north of high ground. Winds will ease across Northern Ireland by dusk, and across the rest of the warning area by about 8pm."
