Forecasters have told Brits to expect wet and windy weather in Britain on Friday, which will have started across the Atlantic.
That met office The warned “heavier rain and strong winds” will spread quickly on Friday.
Annie Shuttleworth, a Met Office meteorologist, stressed that such forecasts are not unusual for this time of year and said the impact of the weather is expected to be limited at this point.
She said: The strongest winds will affect north-west Scotland and Northern Ireland, where severe gales of up to 55mph are possible on Friday morning and afternoon.
“There will also be short periods of strong winds along the south coast on Friday afternoon and evening, with the risk of storms.
“We expect the strong Atlantic jet stream to develop and push a deep area of low pressure across the Atlantic that will rain the UK with some strong winds on Friday.”

She added: “It will likely bring some of the heaviest rain and strongest winds we’ve seen so far this autumn.
“Saturday will be a choppy day with blustery showers and perhaps more persistent rain in the south.
“By Sunday, however, it will be a dry and calm day across the UK.”
