Britons are being warned of a glaring weekend with fierce winds and rain blowing into the South West and then spreading across the country on Sunday.
The Met Office has issued a yellow wind and rain warning for both Saturday and Sunday with an unsettled picture ahead ahead of a much-improved outlook for next week with sunshine and temperatures as high as 18. °C.
But over the weekend, there is a chance of heavy rain due to strong winds and heavy rain.
The Met Office’s weather warning covers the Southwest on Saturday and runs from 1pm to 7pm.
It states: “An episode of windy and wet weather Saturday afternoon is likely to result in some travel disruption.”
It reads: “There may be some delays for road, rail, air and ferry transport. It is possible that some bus and train services are affected, with some journeys taking longer.
“There could be delays for overhead vehicles on roads and bridges and could damage trees. There may be some short-term power outages and other service outages. It is likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be impacted by spray water and/or high waves. ”
Later, more widespread yellow warnings were also issued for Sunday with similar advice to expect travel disruption.
BBC weather forecaster Tomasz Schafernaker warned people that as well as strong winds, people will need their umbrellas.
“Cloudy and some rain across Scotland, parts of northern England, brighter across the rest of England and Wales, and in fact some clear mid-afternoon sunshine and I think the weather is good. The best weather will be farther away. you go east,” he said, looking at Saturday.
“But watch out for this rain here, this is low pressure hitting the south-west of the UK. Not only rain but also some very strong winds, we’re talking 50mph gusts. , 60mph and maybe even 70mph. will actually be quite stormy around some of the coast.”
Mr. Schafernaker said this disease is not common but advised people in the Southwest to pay attention.
Then, on Sunday, strong winds will cover the country with weather affected by a low-pressure system in the west of Scotland.
“The winds are very strong across the country, we’re talking 30mph, 40mph or maybe 50mph around some exposed coastline… on Sunday it’s going to be very cold across the UK. Temperatures. on Sundays it’s usually between 10C and 12C so it’s not as mild as before but mild enough,” said Mr Schafernaker.
Next week is coming and people can expect spring-like temperatures, especially in the south.
“Monday, a much better day, winds will be lighter, surrounding will be a bit sunny, still some showers around northern parts of the country but in the south the picture is really improving. and that’s how it’s going to be in the next few years, Mr. Schafernaker said.
“Actually, in the south of the country, temperatures can peak around 17°C or 18°C. So a mixed but better weekend last week.”
