“Friday and the weekend are looking very unsettled. An unseasonably deep area of low pressure tracking just to the northwest of the UK has the potential to bring heavy rain and strong winds to all regions.”
Commenting on the conditions expected for Saturday, Mr Gaze, said: “It’s looking very unsettled as we head through the current week.
“There’s still uncertainty about the details for Saturday – on balance, it looks as though rain is likely in the north and western parts of the UK.
“Also a significant likelihood of rain in the south, but some computer models indicate the south could stay dry. At this stage, it’s not looking great.”
