A yellow level weather warning has been issued by the Met Office with a forecast of strong winds in Essex, gusting at up to 50mph.
The Met Office has issued the alert for Tuesday morning, starting at 1am and running through to 12pm.
There is a warning that road, rail, air and ferry transport could all be disrupted – with high winds starting in the early morning and lasting through rush hour on Tuesday.
The Met Office says to expect delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges, possible disruption to bus and train routes and potential damage to some outdoor structures.
The warning reads: “It’s likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves.”
The Met Office alert says: “An area of low pressure is expected to track across the far south and southeast of the UK from the southwest on Tuesday morning.
“To the south and east of the low centre some unseasonably strong winds are expected, particularly around some coasts and hills. Here gusts may reach 40-50 mph which may lead to damage to temporary structures and transport disruption.
“The strong winds will be accompanied by some heavy showers or rain for a time, before gradually moving northeastwards and easing from the southwest through Tuesday daytime.”
