The Met Office has warned of high, ‘gusty’ winds and heavy rain today (Monday) and Tuesday.
Summer may be around the corner, but North Devon is set to experience high winds and heavy rain over the next couple of days.
A yellow weather warning is in place today (Monday) until 6pm tomorrow, with an ‘unseasonable’ windy spell.
A chief forecaster said: “An initial swathe of southerly gales accompanied by heavy rain will move east across many parts later on Monday, giving gusts of 40-50mph widely but 60-70mph across exposed Irish Sea and perhaps some English Channel coasts.
“Winds will become west or southwesterly on Tuesday, with further gusts to 40-50mph 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.
