UK weather forecast: Violent winds and torrential downpours to cause CHAOS over weekend

Downpours will bring misery to Britons this weekend, as spring holds off appearing. Friday is forecasted to remain mostly dry, with temperatures around 13C in London. However as the weekend arrives, the possibility of new weather warnings being issued rises.

Met Office meteorologist Emma Salter said:”Friday’s looking pretty nice.

“There will be barely a breath of wind in most places.

“There’ll be scattered showers in some regions of England and Wales but most places will remain dry.

She added: “Scotland and Northern Ireland will get the lion’s share of the sunshine.”

“All change for the weekend, though.

“Friday night we will see a band of rain coming into the west, moving eastwards.

“That doesn’t look too heavy but on Saturday morning the wind will pick up.

“Western regions could see gusts of up to 50mph or 60mph over higher ground.

“ I wouldn’t rule out a warning being issued for the weekend, through Saturday night and Sunday.”

Already the Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for Thursday, as temperatures dropped to lows of -6c

Over on Twitter, users took to their accounts to bemoan the lack of sunshine that has plagued the UK for weeks.
