The strongest gusts of wind will be in the Worcester Hills, where it could briefly hit 50 to 60 miles an hour. Most of southern England is likely to have gusts of 45 to 50 mph, which is why the National Weather Service will have a wind report by Saturday morning.
Power outages and wind damage are possible before the wind brightened dramatically on Saturday afternoon.
