BBC weather claimed gusts could reach up to 60mph and will bring wet weather as the system pushes aside any warm weather over the country.

Parts of the north of the UK, including Scotland, Northern Ireland and the north of England are likely to see the worst of the weather, with potential travel disruption on Thursday morning.

BBC weather forecaster Ben Rich said: “There is some wet and very windy weather in the next 24 to 48 hours but you might not know it as you step out on Wednesday morning because actually, we will see some sunshine.

“It is not until quite late on that things will turn wet and windy from the north-west.

“A decent enough day actually, good spells of sunshine out there. We will see cloud start to increase from the west there could be the odd shower and she rain splashes into the western side of Northern Ireland and western Scotland as we go through the late afternoon as well, the wind strengthening.

“Before that arrives we will get up to 22C across parts of the south east.”

The BBC weather forecaster claimed the wind could even exceed powerful strengths of 60mph.

He said: “As we go through Wednesday night it does turn wet and windy across Northern Ireland, Scotland and northern England and across these areas the wind really will strengthen through.

“In the small hours of Thursday we could see wind gusts up to 50mph or 60mph, perhaps even stronger than that in places.

“So places like Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, there could be some travel disruption for the Thursday morning rush hour.”

Met Office spokesman Grahame Madge also warned the weather system is set to crash into the UK in the coming hours.

He said: “We are in a period of change, the last few days have been dominated by high pressure; this will slip away and open the doors to conditions coming in from the Atlantic later this week.

“Late Wednesday into Thursday a low-pressure system will make its way towards the UK, it could deliver some quite substantial amounts of rain and will also bring some very strong winds to western parts of the country, these could reach gale or even severe-gale force.

“While coastal regions are expected to be most affected, everybody is going to be aware of the winds on Thursday.

“We have not issued a name for this system and while we are not going to jump to anything at the moment as there are still a couple of days to go, we are keeping an eye on this.”

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for wind for parts Northern Ireland, northern England and Scotland.

Warm weather is expected to return to the UK shortly after the powerful weather system, Exacta Weather’s James Madden said.

He added: “From midweek will see some changes to the jet stream that will bring about some slightly cooler temperatures of late and more in the way of changeable weather as low pressure becomes the more dominant feature, particularly, in parts to the north and west of the country.

“However, this pattern change will only be short-lived and we can expect to see a reversal back to largely dominant summery weather during the early part of next week and throughout the remainder of the month.”
