Some have already complained of "total chaos" and "hell" while trying to exit London this weekend.

And those returning ahead of work on Tuesday could face worse, with “fallen trees and disruption to power supplies also possible in some places”.

Frank Saunders, chief operational meteorologist at the Met Office, said: "Southern England and south Wales will see very strong winds from the early hours of Monday morning.

"There is the potential for gusts of 50-60mph in inland areas. Exposed south- and west-facing coasts could even see gusts of around 70mph, with the possibility of large waves."

He added: "There is currently some uncertainty about the track that Storm Katie will take, so we urge everyone, especially those travelling on Easter Monday, to look out for the latest information from the Met Office.”
