UK weather forecast: Britain to face travel chaos with yellow warnings in place for rain

Saturday marks the last day of the meteorological summer with autumn already setting into northwestern parts of the country. Wet and windy conditions will start on Saturday, allowing showers to follow for the second half of the weekend. Heavy rainfall will continue into Saturday morning across western parts of Scotland and England as well as Wales.

Showers will be accompanied by strong gales around the exposed Irish sea and coastal areas.

The rain will then move its way slowly eastwards, clearing around lunchtime in Wales and southwest England.

Met Office Meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: “Rainfall sticks around for the far north of Scotland.

“Across the far west of Scotland, Northern Ireland, parts of England as well as Wales, showers follow the main area of rainfall.

“The showers are accompanied by a blustery wind and it will feel cool as the rain clears.

“But ahead of the front, east Anglia and the southeast will see temperatures up into the mid-20s again.”

Southeast England and east Anglia will see some rain but it will be a big contrast compared to northwestern parts of the country.

As the cold front moves away from the UK, it will leave clear skies for many.

However, gale force winds will sweep through the north of Scotland as the wet weather moves away.

Mr McGivern continued: “This is the weather front separating essentially summer from autumn.

“A very different feel on Sunday when you step out the door, certainly across central and eastern Britain.

“Although there will be plenty of sunny spells – a few mist patches for southeastern areas – there will also be a fresh feel in the air.

“But quite quickly the sunshine will be replaced by shower clouds.”
