Asia's Tech News Daily

The Met Office says a new Atlantic stream will see gale-force winds and torrential rain lash most parts of Britain next week. Temperatures across the country will be mild and moderate averaging between 7-10C (44.6-50F) on Saturday, October 30 and between 13-17C (55.4-62.6F) on Sunday, October 31 as low pressure dominates the UK weather system.

The Met Office said: “Atlantic systems will continue to move in from the west, bringing heavy rain and strong, locally gale-force winds.

“Some rainbands could become slow-moving with locally large rainfall accumulations possible, particularly over western hills.

“The rest of October will continue to see unsettled and windy weather arriving from the Atlantic, with outbreaks of potentially heavy rain for many.

“Wettest in the west and northwest, but still with brief dry interludes.

“Driest conditions likely across some south and south-eastern areas.”

WXCharts latest precipitation and rainfall charts reveal large parts of England turning dark blue and yellow as rain batters the UK.

Meanwhile, a varied range of between 23 and 35mm of rain (0.9-1.37 inches) will fall in across the western half of Scotland with Dumfries and Galloway seeing 47mm (0.59 inches) by Sunday lunchtime.

The eastern half of Scotland and England is expected to remain drier with only lighter spells of between 10 and 14mm (0.39-0.55 inches).

The South Coast of England and Scottish Highlands will see the lowest amount of rain with ranges of between 7 and 10mm (0.27-0.39 inches).

Going into today, there will be some bright spells during this afternoon however thick clouds will build in from the west bringing outbreaks of rain and drizzle across Northern Ireland and Scotland.

On Sunday (October 24), outbreaks of rain and drizzle will clear to reveal sunny spells and scattered showers which will be locally heavy across western areas.

It will be a brighter day on Monday (October 25) with spells of sunshine and patchy cloud cover although there is a continued chance of showers which will be most frequent in the west, according to the Met Office.

Met Office forecaster Alex Deakin, added: “It will turn milder slowly but surely over the weekend. Weather fronts coming in from the west will bring rain.

“The winds will pick up again on Saturday and there will be some rain in the west.

“It is half term for many of us and the weather is going to be pretty changeable.

“Low pressure is nearby on Monday.

“The main themes for the week are that the weather is going to be coming in from the west and the Atlantic.

“Much more likely to continue to see the Atlantic influencing our weather so there will be spells of rain and it will keep temperatures around average for the time of year.

“Chopping and changing next week. Wettest will be in the north-west, driest will be in the south-east.”
