UK weather MAPPED: Thunderstorms to wash out Halloween - where will storm hit near YOU?

Britain is set for a dramatic display as electrical storms roll in on Wednesday evening.

As trick-or-treaters prepare their and head out for some candy, it might be a good idea to take an umbrella.

The storms look set to hit a large portion of the UK, after many enjoying a dry and mild day.

And it looks like the rain could begin as early as 6pm in parts.

 Meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: “We’re pulling in milder air, temperatures rebounding into the double figures after several days of colder than average conditions.

“We’ve got further rainfall pushing in for Wednesday evening.

“If you are heading out trick or treating I would head out there early if you’re in south-east England.”

Mr McGivern added that Halloween would start off chilly, with widespread frost and temperatures just above freezing.

He said: “It’s a bone-chilling start in places this Halloween morning, frosty for many with showers in the west

“Just keeping things frost free for the far west, sunny spells though for many as we start off Wednesday.

“Quite a widespread frost for central and northeast Scotland, temperatures further west though where we’ve got a certain increase in showers, tending to stay just above freezing.

“Northern Ireland, patchy frost in places, one or two showers into north-west England as well as west Wales.

“Otherwise plenty of sunshine for much of Wales, England, eastern Scotland as well.”

The stormy weather looks set to continue into the weekend, as  barrels toward the UK, bringing winds up to 80mph.

BBC Weather forecaster Stav Danaos said: “Friday night looks like it’s going to be quite stormy across the west of the country.

“Same too for Saturday, very windy with outbreaks of rain.

“And then this secondary area of low pressure will arrive across our shores on Sunday.

“So, as you can see, it will be quite a wild end to the week.”

Temperatures have warmed up somewhat, however, and are due to say daily mild over the weekend,

But from next week, the Met Office expects more unsettled weather, with long spells of rain and temperatures dropping.
