Hours after a 2,000ft-high tornado was spotted off the south Wales coast, forecasters are warning that more gales will hit Wales on Monday.
Winds up to 70mph are predicted for Monday evening, causing disruption to transport, and flood warnings have been issued..
On Sunday, onlookers said the sky went dark and the sea level rose as the tornado made its way up the Bristol Channel at around 1310 GMT.
It began as a waterspout, a column of water rising over
the sea, before sweeping inland.
It did not cause any damage and died out after 20 minutes.
A forecaster from the Meteorological Office's headquarters
said such phenomena were "far from unusual", with between 50 and 100 tornadoes and waterspouts in and around the UK each year.
Dr Anthony Harris, who lives near the beach at Sully in the Vale of Glamorgan, said it was a dramatic sight.
"It went very dark, like night. There were hailstones and the sea gushed up, " he said.
