UK weather forecast: Heavy rain, gales and flooding to cause transport disruption and risk of power cuts

The UK is set to be lashed by “heavy and persistent” rain, gale-force winds and potential flooding.

The Met Office has forecast increasingly rainy weather for the next few days, with a downpour moving eastwards over England, Scotland and Wales on Thursday.

While Friday will see a bright morning, heavy rain and gale-force winds are forecast to reach parts of England and Scotland by the evening.

The weekend is likely to remain unsettled, with showers or longer spells of rain particularly in the west and south.

The Met Office has issued yellow warnings for rain and wind over the next few days, cautioning that homes and businesses could be flooded, transport delays are expected, and power cuts could occur.

UK weather: Snow forecast as eastern chill sees temperatures plummet across country
Dusting likely to be limited to higher ground in northern regions, Met Office says

If snow does fall it will be limited to higher areas of northern England.

Yet snow did fall last month in parts of the country. County Durham and other areas of northeast England saw a dusting of the white stuff during what meteorologists described as some of the coldest October days for a decade.
