The warnings encompass the East of England, London and the South East, as well as some portions of the south west, such as Bournemouth and Dorset, according to the Met Office.
“An area of low pressure is forecast to track across the far south and southeast of the UK from the south-west on Tuesday morning,” the yellow warning says.
“Unseasonably high winds are forecast to the south and east of the low center, particularly over coastal beaches and hills.
“Gusts of up to 50 miles per hour are possible here, causing damage to temporary structures and transportation disruption.
“For a period, the strong winds will be accompanied by occasional heavy showers or rain, before heading northeastwards and diminishing from the southwest during Tuesday afternoon.”
