"The speeds are likely to be mainly around 40-45mph, but in burst could get up to around 50-55mph, particularly in parts of the coast."
Mr Best added that speeds may well reach close to the 60mph mark on Thursday, with around 10-15mm of rain also forecast for Wednesday evening onwards.
He added: "It will be more than just a windy day, with fairly widespread strong winds.
