Storm Gareth has been causing chaos around the UK with flights cancelled, cars wrecked by falling trees and roads flooded.
Strong winds will gust up to 80mph in Northern Ireland, Wales, most of England and western parts of Scotland amid the storm.
The Met Office said the storm poses a potential danger to life with flying debris, property damage, flooding and large waves.
It has issued severe weather warnings that will last until Thursday afternoon.
Snow also threatens to hit parts of the UK as we approach the beginning of spring.
Met Office chief meteorologist Paul Gundersen said: "The strong north-westerly winds will also affect south-west Scotland late on Tuesday, spreading across much of England and Wales through Wednesday.
"Gusts of 50-55mph are likely inland and up to 65mph along western coasts. Winds will gradually ease during the afternoon."
Gusts could even reach 80mph along coasts in Northern Ireland, the Met Office said.

A yellow weather warning for rain is in place in Lancashire, North Yorkshire and West Yorkshire on Thursday and Friday, when up to two inches is possible.
The Met Office said: "The heaviest rain is expected through the morning, with conditions probably turning drier into the afternoon.
"Around 20 to 30mm of rain is likely to fall quite widely, perhaps up to 50mm in a few places."
Storm Gareth, caused by a deep area of low pressure, was named by Met Eireann, the Irish weather service, and is the third named storm this year after Storm Erik in February and Freya earlier this month.
