The yellow warnings come into play overnight on Sunday and remain in force until mid-afternoon on Easter Monday.
Gusts of up to 70mph could pound the coast.
The Highways Agency has also put out a severe weather alert for high-sided vehicles, caravans, motorbikes and other vulnerable vehicles, asking them to take extra care on the roads.
