BBC Weather warning: ‘Gale force winds’ to batter Britain as brutal downpours thrash UK

BBC Weather meteorologist Matt Taylor forecast cooler temperatures throughout the UK, with heavy showers in parts of East Anglia. He added that an area of low pressure will bring thunder and a heavy breeze to Britain tomorrow.

Mr Taylor said: “Throughout the week things are on the change, it is going to be much cooler in the day than we have been used to.

“Also, it will be chillier by night, with the return of some late-night frost.

“We are going to see some rain at times, and it is a pretty wet start to Wednesday morning especially across England and Wales.

“There are some brief but heavy showers in East Anglia that will ease away by the end of the morning.

“The rain across the middle of England will start to push its way through the day.

“We have got sunshine throughout Scotland and Northern Ireland.

“Only one or two isolated showers and much lighter wind today but it is chillier.”

The BBC meteorologist said regarding Wednesday evening and Thursday’s weather: “Into the night we could see winds strengthen touching gale force along the coast of Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Norfolk in particular.

“Rain gradually eases away as the skies clear, it will be a cold night in some northern eastern parts, there could be a touch of frost in Scotland.

“Tomorrow we have got an area of low pressure putting itself in, that is going to bring some heavy showers rattling through on a heavy breeze with the odd bit of thunder.

“The strongest of winds will be through the English channel and towards the southwest and southwest Wales, this is where we could see winds touch gale force.”

It comes as a high-pressure system will be pushed towards southern areas of the UK during the beginning of next month, meaning there will be “a fair amount of sunshine” according to Netweather.

Netweather’s long-range forecast said: “Into early October there is an increasing chance of high pressure pushing in from the south and bringing mostly settled and warm weather, probably with a fair amount of sunshine for most, and a likelihood of more changeable weather holding on in the north and west of Scotland in particular.

“Temperatures will tend to be close to or just below the long-term seasonal norm early to midweek, with some cool nights midweek as the high pressure moves in and some fog patches in places, but will tend to rise above normal late in the week as there is a significant chance of southerly and south-westerly winds setting in.

“Mean temperatures are thus expected to be a little above normal overall, but only by 1C or less in most parts of the country.

“Rainfall totals are again mostly expected to be below normal, except in western Scotland, where near or slightly above average rainfall is most likely. Sunshine totals are mostly expected to be near normal in central and western Scotland, but above normal elsewhere.”
