UK weather warning: Atlantic storm to batter Brits with rain and 50mph winds
The remains of a storm from the north are set to hit later this week, bringing with it miserable wind and rain. A storm is coming and it will be wet.
A lot of the bad weather we've been having lately is because of low pressure from tropical storms over the Atlantic. The deputy chief meteorologist at the Met Office told The Sun on Friday that a deeper area of low pressure would move into the northwest of the UK.
The met office has issued a yellow-rainfall warning for tomorrow."This means that it will rain a lot tomorrow and it will be windy. The met office has issued a yellow-rainfall warning, which means that people should be careful. However, this is nothing unusual for the time of year.
“At this time of year, the effects of the Atlantic tropical cyclone season can make it difficult to forecast rainfall and wind strengths more than a few days in advance. As a result, the exact timings and strengths may vary throughout the week.” The rest of the week is not going to be good either.
Today, cold, heavy showers are expected. Cold northerly winds are expected to bring low night-time temperatures in the UK from Tuesday. More exposed areas of North Wales and the West Midlands will see windy conditions as the rain falls. Conditions will also be wet in the afternoon in the far South-West.
Rain from last night's storm will clear out of the far southwest today, but showers will continue elsewhere, especially in eastern and western coastal areas and northern Scotland. The weather on Wednesday is expected to be sunny with some showers in coastal areas.

Severe gales are possible in northwestern Scotland and Northern Ireland on Friday morning and afternoon.
The weather will be very windy on the south coast of England on Friday afternoon and evening. There is a chance that the winds could be so strong that they would be classified as gales, but this would only last for a short period of time.

She said that it is likely to bring some of the strongest winds we have seen so far this autumn. "Saturday will be an unsettled day with blustery showers and perhaps some more persistent rain along the south." The weekend is going to be rainy and windy, but by Sunday it will be drier and calmer.
