Met Office Chief Meteorologist Steve Ramsdale said Scotland will see the worst of the rain, with part of Northeast England also missing out on the sunnier weather.
He added: “There’s a bit of a north-south split in the weather for the UK this weekend, with wet and windy weather across the north and largely fine, dry conditions in the south.
“At the moment our focus is on parts of western Scotland. Although Saturday will start bright and breezy with a few showers, heavy and persistent rain and strong winds will arrive later in the day and continue through Sunday, before finally clearing on Monday.
“It’ll be a largely fine and dry weekend elsewhere though, with long spells of autumn sunshine.”
