The Met Office has issued a weather warning for Northern Ireland from 2pm this afternoon (Monday, June 1).
People in the Banbridge area are urged to be aware that a Yellow warning of wind is in place and will be valid until 6pm on Tuesday June 2.
A Met Office statement said: “An unseasonably windy spell is likely across many parts of the UK later on Monday, overnight and well into Tuesday, as active frontal systems sweep across the UK.
“An initial swathe of southerly gales accompanied by heavy rain will move east across many parts later on Monday, giving gusts of 40-50 mph widely but 60-70 mph across exposed Irish Sea and perhaps some English Channel coasts.
“Winds will become west or southwesterly on Tuesday, with further gusts to 40-50 mph more locally, before gradually easing later.
“Large waves will affect some coasts in the west and south at times.
“Given the unseasonable nature of the winds, the public should be aware of the potential for disruption to transport and outdoor activities. Damage to some trees seems likely.
“A front will cross from the west on Monday and Monday night bringing 20-40 mm of rain to northern and western areas along with gales, severe on some coasts and hills.”
