Autumn blast to batter UK for days as ferocious winds and showers on the way

Blustery winds and heavy showers are expected to batter the UK during the next few days.

Changeable weather is being forecast for a lengthy period by meteorologists with multiple bands of adverse conditions set to arrive on these shores from the Atlantic this weekend and beyond, according to the Met Office.

Pulses of rain are expected to be seen in a number of northern regions today (October 7), the Daily Mirror reports.

Saturday (October 8) is set to be dry in most areas but that respite will only prove temporary with more unsettled conditions likely for Sunday (October 9) brought by high pressure in a pattern that is expected to be repeated every day until at least the middle of next week.

Speaking in the Met Office's 10-Day Trend report, Alex Deakin said: "The pressure pattern for the next few days will be dominated by low pressure to the north and high pressure to the south. Plenty of isobars are on the charts, meaning it’s going to stay pretty blustery.

"At times we’ll see these weather fronts drifting through, bringing bands of showery rain across the country. Up until Saturday, we’re going to see a mixture of sunshine and showers with strong, blustery westerly winds."

The forecast comes hot on the heels of an already miserable week weather-wise for some parts, as flash-floods left a number of major roads impassable in Swansea on Wednesday morning (October 5).

A band of heavy rain and gusty winds will move steadily south-eastwards today, though it will not reach south-east England until later this evening.

Feeling colder in the north-west with sunny spells and blustery showers.

The weather will be mostly fine through Saturday before rain and strong winds spread from the north-west on Sunday, clearing the south on Monday (October 10).

Often windy, especially in the north, with temperatures close to normal.
