In addition to the weather changes, the Met Office has issued a warning about unseasonably strong winds and heavy rain or showers across the UK over the coming days due to an Atlantic low-pressure system. This could potentially lead to flooding in some areas. Residents are advised to stay updated on the latest weather warnings and to take necessary precautions.

Further ahead

As we look ahead to the start of next week, the weather is expected to brighten up on Monday and Tuesday with fewer heavy showers and easing winds. However, there is a chance of organised heavy rain later on Tuesday.
