Showery in the west & north-west
A deep area of low pressure (Storm Eleanor) moves quickly eastwards across the North Sea into southern Scandinavia today. Remaining windy throughout the day for England & Wales, with westerlies reaching gale force in exposed spots. Much lighter winds in Scotland.
Frequent showers in the west & north-west, locally merging to constant rain, and possible hail. Brighter skies and some sunshine toward the east & south. Another frontal system moves in from the south-west later ahead of another Atlantic depression.
Very high tides and stormy seas in the west and south of Britain and Ireland, likely to cause coastal flooding and damage to seafronts.
Today's top temperatures will be 5 to 9C.
Have a great day.
