Matt Taylor told BBC Breakfast that Wales has seen their strongest winds for 13 months and highlighted the 80 miles per hour gales in Gwynedd. The BBC meteorologist added that the strong winds will push showers across Britain but there will be some sunshine through Thursday.
Mr Taylor said: “There have been power cuts in Wales, they have had the strongest winds in Wales since February last year.
“Winds in Gwynedd over 80 miles an hour and it is still pretty blowy out there at the moment.
“It is a horrible start to the day for some of you.”
He continued: “Winds could still strengthen in the coming hours across southern counties of England and into the Midlands.
“It is here where we could see winds top 50 or 60 miles an hour.
“It is pretty blowy out to the west but not as bad as through the night.
“We have still got some heavy rain across northern England and that will be pushed out in the next few hours.
“That will turn brighter and we should all see some sunshine today but there are plenty of showers being pushed along by those strong winds.

“Those showers could come with hail, thunder and over the hills of Scotland a little bit of snow too.”
The BBC states regarding today’s weather: “Thursday will be less wet with further showers rather than widespread rain, most of them in northern and western areas.
“Some will be wintry over high ground in the north, chiefly in Scotland, and in all areas there will be a risk of isolated hail and thunderstorms.
“Strong winds will continue into the morning but gradually ease through the afternoon and evening.”

While Netweather forecaster Nick Finnis said: “Another blustery day on Friday, with sunny spells and showers blowing through most areas on a brisk westerly wind.
“Again, showers most frequent in the west, wintry over upland areas of the north and west.”
Mr Finnis added: “Little change through the weekend, low pressure close to the north with tight isobars across the UK, so still a brisk westerly wind driving scattered showers, with sunny spells in between, across all parts.
“Temperatures dipping overnight, so a risk of localised frost in sheltered spots where skies clear overnight.”
