Severe gales, mild for all, rain and drizzle north and west
Batten down the hatches! We are in for a windy one today. Severe gales in Scotland, northern England and Ireland as well as parts of Wales. It should be bright this morning in eastern parts of England, but cloudier skies in the west bring outbreaks of drizzle, together with the risk of heavier rain in western Scotland.
This afternoon continues to be rather cloudy in the west with drizzle, mist and fog on windward facing coasts and hills. Heavier rain in western parts of Scotland. Very gusty winds continue in Scotland and northern England. A mild day for all. The winds easing overnight. Still some rain and drizzle in the west, but drier to the east.
