BBC Weather forecast: Britons brace for 80mph gales as Atlantic storm barrels towards UK

The wet and windy will cause travel disruptions across the country and Britons have been warned of treacherous conditions to continue throughout the week, starting from Monday. Weather forecaster Matt Taylor warned the most hit in the UK will be the western areas of the country. Temperatures will be on the rise thanks to the strong southern winds, he added. Mr Taylor said: “For Monday we’re all watching what’s happening out in the Atlantic.

“This is going to be driving the weather for the rest of this coming week. Turning very wet and very windy across many western areas as we go through Monday.

“The afternoon/evening rush hour with torrential rain potentially and winds could top 60, 70, maybe 80mph, with some of those heavier bursts in the west.

“Much of eastern Scotland and good part of eastern England will stay dry throughout the day with some spells of sunshine.

“Temperatures will be on the rise thanks to the winds from the south. And overall, next week temperatures above where they should be this time of the year.

“But of more concern is that we will se a deeper area of low pressure. It could be quite stormy at times, with chances of travel disruption for the week as well.”

Heavy covered much of the North of England and parts of Scotland on Friday, with many waking up to white gardens, covered cars and blanketed roads. As much as 1.5 inches covered Northumbria, Cumbria and County Durham on Thursday night into Friday.

Now more could be on the way for the same areas, forecaster Marco Petagna told the Mirror he is “fairly confident” of snow falling on Sunday.

Temperatures were recorded as plummeting to -5C as the snow hit.

Meteorologist Mr Petagna said: “We are pretty confident we will see some snow on Sunday, mainly over the hills.

He added there would be a high probability snow will be an “ample feature pf the month for many parts of the country”.

Mr Madden said: “The next wintry blast will likely be driven by an easterly component with all the right ingredients for a troublesome cold spell with widespread heavy snow for many.

“This will pave the way for an exceptionally cold January, there are signs that snow will be an ample feature of the month for many parts of the country.

“With colder conditions forecast through the month there will be a risk of significant snowfall which could bring notable accumulations at times.”
