Just days after an unseasonable and extreme hail storm hit the village of Newchurch, a warning has been issued for severe gales accompanied by heavy rain.
Local forecasters IW Met Service warn that throughout Bank Holiday Monday late afternoon and evening, into the early hours of Tuesday morning, the Island will see a spell of strong south to southwesterly winds, following what is set to be a pretty wet and windy day overall.
Gusts of 40-50mph will be widespread with gusts of 60-65mph likely on exposed coasts and hills in the south and west of the Island.
A spell of heavy rain will accompany the strong winds and whilst the rain itself wont be problematic, it is likely that the roads will be extremely slippery in some places, especially in areas where it has been dry throughout April.
The warning is in force from 16:00 on Monday until 03:00 in the early hours of Tuesday.
