BBC Weather forecast: Temperatures to SOAR on Sunday following DANGEROUS SUPERSTORM | Weather | News


BBC Weather forecaster Ben Rich warned the latest weather front arriving from the Atlantic will cause severe disruption across the country on Friday night and Saturday. But the BBC meteorologist claimed the gale force winds coming from the south will bring temperatures to the mid-teens level after weeks of freezing conditions. He said: “Still some rain to clear from Shetland and also from the far south-east of England during Saturday morning.

“That frontal system will push away but low pressure still firmly in charge as we head on into the weekend.

“Through the day on Saturday we’ll see yes, some spells of sunshine but also a fair scattering of showers, particularly down towards the south-west but then becoming more widespread later during the day.

“Some of these showers heavy with the odd rumble of thunder.

“They could give a lot of rain in a short space of time but with the winds still all coming up from the south it’s going to be a mild day, 11C to 15C.

“And then for Sunday, for Armistice Day, is the same mix of weather.

“Some spells of sunshine, also some heavy showers, possibly thundery.”

Temperatures will go up from the average 6C to 10C on Friday to up to 15C on Saturday and Sunday.

The Met Office has issued Yellow and Amber Weather Warnings for rain and wind affecting some parts of the UK.

The Amber Warning is for Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire and is in force until 11pm today. 

Rain will affect southwestern parts of Wales during this afternoon and evening, bringing a further 20-40 mm of rain. 

Much of this will fall within six to nine hours and lead to further flooding. Scattered heavy showers will follow from the west overnight.

The Yellow Weather Warning is for Central, Tayside and Fife, Grampian, London and South East England, Northern Ireland, South West Scotland, South West England, Strathclyde and Wales. 

According to the Met Office said a band of heavy rain is expected to move east on Friday with widely 15-25 mm of rain falling and 1.6 – 2.3 inches (40-60 mm) over higher ground. 

“This will be in addition to other spells of heavy rain so far this week affecting similar areas. 

“Rain will be accompanied by strong winds with gusts of 50-55 mph possible inland and 60-70 mph around some coasts.”
