BRITAIN faces being lashed by three inches of rain, gales and snow this weekend as wretched weather returns.
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for Southeastern England, London and parts of East Anglia on Sunday.
They are forecasting downpours of up to 70mm in places accompanied by strong to gale force Northerly winds.
Homes and businesses in the affected areas risk flooding and damage with road closures and difficult driving conditions expected.
It could also impact on the public transport network with delays or cancellations to train and bus services.
And by Monday temperatures will drop far enough for snow to fall on high ground over the North and South Downs.
Tomorrow there is a significant risk of hail as rain arrives overnight from the South West pushing eastwards.
BBC’s Carol Kirkwood warned: “There will be showers from the word go and some of them will be heavy and thundery with hail.”
Overnight a deep area of low pressure arriving from the South West will bring stronger winds and rain outbreaks particularly to England and Wales, bringing with it some “quite nasty” weather, according to the Met Office’s Claire Nasir.
On Friday morning the wet and windy weather will sweep from the SouthWest up to southern parts of Yorkshire.
Saturday will see a slightly better day as there is a lull before the arrival of a new low pressure system from France, but you can still expect almost an inch of rain and 40 mph winds.
Met Office spokesperson Nichola Maxey explained: “The weather front will see temperatures start dropping which could herald some frost.
“And then on Sunday there will be heavy winds and rains across much of the country. By Monday because of falling temperatures some of the rain could fall as snow over higher ground.”
Happily the awful conditions aren’t set to linger with forecasters predicting the mercury could rise above average by the middle of the week.
This will be sparked by warm winds from eastern Europe.
