It could time to batten down the hatches this weekend.
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for Kent during Saturday afternoon and into the evening with gusts of up to 65mph predicted along the coast. (Oct 2)
A spokesman said: "A spell of strong southerly winds is expected to affect some southern and eastern parts of England during Saturday afternoon and into the evening. Gusts are likely to reach 45-55mph inland with 65mph possible along exposed coasts.
"Heavy rain will be an additional hazard with as much as 30-40 mm of rain falling in three to six hours in some parts."
Disruption to travel is expected with delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport likely.
The spokesman added: "It’s likely that some coastal routes, seafronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves. Spray and flooding on roads could probably make journey times longer."
