The WXCharts map shows the strong weather system sweeping through the country with gusts of up to 70mph on Friday.
Yellow warnings for rain and wind over parts of the UK on Thursday and Friday have been issued by the Met Office.
The huge band of tropical air sweeping into the UK on a supercharged jet stream will usher in torrential downpours.
Flooding, power cuts and huge surf could all pose hazards in the warning zones.
A spokesman for The Weather Channel said: “Friday will be a very wet and windy day when a deeper area of low pressure approaches from the west bringing widespread cloud and rain, initially across western areas, before spreading northeast through the day.
“There will be blustery and wet night for most before the main band of rain clears to the North Sea to leave a mixture of scattered showers and clearer spells.”
BBC Weather forecaster Ben Rich also warned of the severe weather conditions.
He said: “We’ve got another lump of cloud out here in the Atlantic that is hurtling towards us, and promises to bring some very wet and windy weather during tomorrow.
“We’re likely to see gales in places during tomorrow, so some travel disruption is possible, your BBC local radio station will keep you up to date.
“Having said all that not a bad start in many areas, quite breezy but there’ll be some sunny glimpses, a bit of showery rain creeping eastwards.
“Then through the afternoon it’s this wet weather that we’re a little bit concerned about, through Northern Ireland, Wales, the far south west, strengthening winds but those winds coming from a pretty mild direction, coming from the south, so temperatures all the way up to 14C or 15C.”
He added: “In Plymouth and in Cardiff we’ll see some really wet conditions, with the rain fringing into Birmingham, clipping into parts of Northern Ireland, north-west England and the western side of Scotland.
“Those black wind arrows show the wind gust, 40mph, 50mph, 60mph gusts, perhaps a touch stronger for exposed coasts in the west.
“Now the very wet and windy weather sweeps eastwards, but low pressure still in charge as we head into the weekend, so things not really settling down an awful lot.
“There will still be quite a few showers packing in on this south-westerly breeze, some of the showers particularly down toward the south will be heavy and thundery.”
