It comes after two storms – Isha and Jocelyn – wreaked havoc across the country with strong winds, causing chaos in terms of public transport, road travel and general safety.

While it will be very windy on Sunday, it will at least be a mild day, with highs of around 11C. The city could also see a mix of bright skies and showers.

Met Office meteorologist Craig Snell said: “It will be a short-lived windy spell, with gusts reaching 50-60mph in some places but it will not be anything like the recent storms. There could be some localised issues as a result.

“There is a very mild Sunday to come, all of us will be in double figures.”
