The Met Office issued a yellow warning from midday on Monday, May 3 to 9am on Tuesday due to a “spell of disruptive winds”. The warning said: “A vigorous area of low pressure is likely to cross Northern England on Monday.

“Strong winds are expected to the south of the low centre with gusts widely 40 to 50 mph, but perhaps as high as 60 mph around some coasts and hills of England and South Wales.

“The winds should gradually ease through Tuesday morning.

“The strong winds will be accompanied by some heavy rain at times.”

Britons have taken to Twitter to express their surprise at the weather conditions.

One person said: “So windy today I got covered in tree sheddings.

“On the plus side I can get a seat on the tube with the amount of sneezing I’ve been doing.”

Another commenter wrote: “What’s going on with all this wind though???

“Why is it this windy and rainy in MAY?”

Someone else said: “Rain setting in now across London area… gusting to 40mph, is it really May?”

A fourth user added: “I know I wanted rain for the garden but it’s rained non stop for nine hours and the lawn has puddles (yes, I haven’t aerated it yet).

“Stopped now, but still chilly for May 3.

“Coats for the rest of the week I see and forget the shorts!

“Temperate climate.”
