Britons are being warned of 70 mph rain and snow by midweek with a combination of frost and milder weather in the east-west split.

A low-pressure front is sweeping in from the Atlantic bringing strong winds, rain and snow to the west of the country from Wednesday and Thursday while the weather will be brighter in the east and mercury could rise peaks during adolescence.

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for northwest Scotland that will run from 6am to 11am on Wednesday.

It states: “Serious gala dinners could lead to some disruption on Wednesday morning.”

More people can expect: “Transportation by road, rail, air and ferries may be delayed. Perhaps some bus services are affected with some journeys taking longer. ”

Met Office forecaster Clare Nasir said: “There was wind on Wednesday, high winds to the northwest and also some heavy rain. Dry skies to the south and east. ”

She continued: “We are likely to see high winds for a time when the strongest winds extend to the extreme north of Scotland. We could even see some gusts of wind across the east of Northern Ireland again in the morning combining that band of rain with some big bangs. “

At the same time, it is likely to be a dry start to Wednesday across England and Wales before the rain moves in.

Snow is also forecast in the north-west of the UK



“This rain is slowly pushing in and these winds are going to be extremely strong, especially through the northern channel,” said Ms Nasir.

“The cloud will now come and go over England and Wales as well as eastern Scotland but some brighter weather, even some sunshine across the eastern counties for the day.

“At the same time, rain will slowly cut through the western part of Wales as well as the West Country, affecting the wet weather of Northern Ireland as well as western Scotland and a cold front will allow for snow, particularly in altitude above 300m So west will have the strongest wind, rain will break out, east will be 12°C to 14°C.

Winds could reach 70mph in Scotland

Maps from WXCharts show a few centimeters of snow possible in Scotland on Thursday night.

And BBC weatherman Nick Miller has also predicted snow to come along with the gales.

“Some severe gales, gusts of up to 60-70mph, can cause disturbances before they calm down,” he said.

Strong winds are forecast in the west of the UK on Wednesday

“This weather system weakens as it moves eastward through the night and into Thursday there will be some snowfall towards the Highlands and southern highlands for some time.

“During the clear days in north-west Scotland and Northern Ireland starting on Thursday, there will be frost here and in particular in Northern Ireland with a risk of seeing some fog.”

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Clouds are low across central, southern and eastern England breaking up allowing for some sunshine. A band of rain, sometimes heavy, will move slowly eastward through Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and then western England. Initially, gala dinners were serious all over western Scotland.


Rain broke out over some northern and western areas, although the rain turned lighter and lighter. Dry with clear weather in the southeast, and far northwest where frost is present.


Partly cloudy with patchy light rain and drizzle moving slowly eastward. Brighter over some western areas. Then the wind turns to the west.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Instead of worrying about outbreaks of rain in most parts of the UK, the heaviest and longest lasting was in the western regions. There are times when the wind is strong, especially in the west coast.
