BBC Weather: Britain to be bombarded with wall of heavy rain and severe 75 mph gales

BBC Weather has warned of disruptive weather conditions next week as a wall of heavy rain is set to strike the UK from the west and move across the country. This comes after a relatively calm weather week with a few outbreaks of rain alongside the heavy cloud. Winds are expected to be "severe" with highs of 80mph in some exposed areas.

Temperatures are expected to remain in single digits with some areas not seeing temperatures higher than two degrees due to the clear skies.

BBC weather forecast Philip Avery said: “Today the favoured few get to see a little bit of sunshine.

“There is enough cloud out to the west for the odd spot of rain and the cloud thick enough near that northern weather front to keep the rain coming on and off in Scotland.

“That weather front will wave its way back towards this northwestern quarter of Scotland as we get into these early hours.

“Elsewhere in the country as we move into Sunday if the cloud breaks for any length of time you may get temperatures around two or three degrees Celsius.

“But I think for most of us the temperatures will be closer to four to eight degrees.

“That is how we start Sunday and there is still a lot of cloud across the country.

“As that wind is more south and southwest many more areas will get to 10 and 11 degrees.”

“If we look at Tuesday those isobars really squeeze up widely across the British isles but especially across parts of Scotland.

“Some of those gusts could well be looking at 75 or 80mph in exposed locations.

“So at times in next week, we will be talking about an awful lot of wind if not gales and severe gales, possibly disruptive winds for some.”
