A WEATHER warning for strong winds is in force on the Isle of Wight today (Monday).
The yellow 'be aware' warning is in place until 1pm today.
The Met Office said: "South to southwesterly gales and locally severe gales will affect western and southern parts of Wales and parts of southwest England during the early hours of Monday, moving east to affect English Channel coastal counties through Monday morning, whilst winds ease from the west later."
"The public should be aware of the risk of disruption to travel, particularly as the gales will be combined by heavy rain in some areas."
An additional warning for heavy rain is in place for Wednesday from 6am to midnight.
The Met Office said: "Further rain, heavy at times is expected to spread quickly northeastwards across southwest and parts of southern England on Wednesday. Rainfall totals are expected to be widely 10-20 mm, but as much as 30-40 mm over some south facing coasts and hills. South or southwesterly gales with gusts 50-60 mph may also accompany the rain."
"With ground already saturated over much of this area, the public should be aware of the risk of further localised flooding."
