THE wind and rain looks set to continue this week with a fresh warning being issued for Tuesday across western coasts of Wales.

Hot on the heels of Storm Kathleen, Storm Pierrick - named by meteorologists in France - is set to bring gusts of 65mph and heavy showers on Tuesday across coastal regions.

The yellow warning is in place from 1am Tuesday until 3pm, stating that strong winds may bring hazardous coastal conditions and could cause some travel disruption.

The Met Office says: "A spell of strong winds blowing from the northwest will affect this region on Tuesday.

"Initially arriving across Southwest Wales, in the early hours of Tuesday, and reaching North Wales and Northwest England during Tuesday morning.

"Gusts will reach 40-50 mph widely, with 60 or 65 mph gusts expected for exposed coasts of Southwest and West Wales overnight.

"Winds will likely ease (although still remaining breezy) across Southwest and West Wales before dawn on Tuesday."

The Met Office is advising people to be aware of large waves and to take care if walking near cliffs.
