The Met Office have warned on Monday that the UK is to be hit with 50mph gusts and torrential rain today.

A Met Office spokesperson said, “The next few days will see unseasonably wet and windy weather across the UK, particularly in the south on Tuesday.

“It will turn a little cooler at the start of the week too, however, through the second half of the week the weather will turn more settled with temperatures returning to the low twenties celsius.”

The Met Office have given a yellow warning which reads, “An area of low pressure is expected to track across the far south and southeast of the UK from the south-west on Tuesday morning.

“To the south and east of the low centre some unseasonably strong winds are expected, particularly around some coasts and hills.

“Here gusts may reach 40-50mph which may lead to damage to temporary structures and transport disruption.

“The strong winds will be accompanied by some heavy showers or rain for a time, before gradually moving northeastwards and easing from the southwest through Tuesday daytime.”

Forecasters have also given a warning for Scotland, which reads, “Heavy, occasionally thundery, slow moving showers this afternoon and evening will potentially give 10-20mm in a couple of hours.

“These will most likely occur over central and western Scotland through the day, becoming confined to the northwest of Scotland by the evening.

“Where heavy showers do break out, this could lead to some transport disruption and the potential for localised flooding.”
