Much of the UK has been warned of potentially dangerous winds from Tuesday.

A yellow weather warning has been issued by the Met Office for all of England, Wales, Northern Ireland and most of Scotland.

The only places likely to escape gusts are the far north islands and Scotland.

The rest of the country is expected to face possible travel disruptions and short-term power outages.

It comes as parts of the UK are still struggling to recover after devastating Cyclone Arwen hit 10 days ago.

More than 4,000 homes remain without electricity, mostly in the north-east of England.

High winds hit parts of the country Saturday night, with gusts of 35 to 50 mph recorded.

Temperatures also plummeted below zero in parts of Scotland.

The Met Office has warned that winds next week could be accompanied by heavy rain – making it even more difficult for already arid parts of England.

Met Office meteorologist Rachel Ayers said: ‘Today will be a relatively nice day, but tonight it will be windy.

‘Temperatures, with wind and cloud cover, should be around tonight.

‘That should help a little bit with things, but we are expecting some more changeable and unsettled weather.

‘This unsettled weather won’t help areas that have been impacted too much by Hurricane Arwen.’

Homes lost power for days on end because of storm damage.

The government has assured residents that they should be reconnected by Christmas at the latest.

Stewart Sexton, from Alnwick in Northumberland, lost power on the 10th day.

“We confirmed yesterday that the match will take place today,” said the 57-year-old.

‘NPG (Northern Powergrid) even called us back to say yes – confirmed – back on the 5th.

‘However, here today it is blowing 40mph accompanied by rain so confirmation is highly unlikely, if not impossible. “

The Ministry of Defense said 297 staff from the British Army and Royal Marines were still providing support and conducting door-to-door checks of vulnerable people on Sunday morning.
