The Met Office has warned that heavy showers and winds reaching speeds of up to 100 km / h will hit England and Wales later this week.
The two nations are covered by a yellow weather warning for wind from 9 p.m. on Wednesday to 3 p.m. on Thursday.
The warning reads: “High winds, accompanied by heavy and stormy showers, can disrupt England and Wales.”
Gusts of 50-55 miles per hour are expected, which could rise to 60-70 miles per hour on coastlines and hills.
The Met Office said there would likely be “delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges” as well as “delays in road, rail, air and ferry traffic”.
It added that “a short-term blackout and other services” are possible while some bus and train connections may be affected, with some journeys taking longer.
A tweet stated, “The jet stream will sweep through the UK and make things uneasy.
“A number of low pressure systems will bring wet and windy weather by the middle of the week.”
