BBC Weather: UK to be hit by heavy rain and gusty winds

The BBC meteorologist added that a cold front is heading is moving eastwards across the UK while a warm front is heading northwards. Ms Kirkwood added that heavy rain is coming into Britain from the west which will result in Scotland and Northern Ireland seeing some showers. 

Ms Kirkwood said: “Low pressure is dominating our weather, there is a cold front that is heading eastwards and a warm front heading northwards.

“Wherever you are it is going to be a windy day.

“We have got rain coming in from the west which is falling steadily, some of it is still on the heavy side.  

“Through the day it continues to move east, right behind it we will return to some brighter conditions.

“There is a lot of cloud and there will be showery outbreaks of rain across Northern Ireland and parts of Scotland.

“It will be windy across the southwest and even inland it will be quite gusty.”

She continued: “As we head through the evening and overnight eventually, we say goodbye to that weather front, but we still have the curl around the low pressure moving across Scotland.  

“There will be a few showers coming and overall it will be a breezy night.

“Temperatures will be a bit lower tomorrow morning than they are currently.”

BBC weather’s long-range forecasters stated that cold air could push south by December 26 and 28, making for chilly conditions.

BBC Weather said: “The final few days of 2020 are expected to stay rather unsettled.

“If we are to see some cold air coming down from the north, then late December offers the best chance.

“High pressure will still be located to the north of the UK, near Iceland and Greenland, helping to keep the Atlantic low pressure track either overhead the UK or a bit to the south.

“This favours southern England and Wales to be wettest, a risk that snow could fall over some northern hills, while western Scotland could end up a drier than average.”

The Met Office expects the period after Christmas to be characterised by bouts of wind and rain.
