BBC weather forecast UK: 60MPH gusts to RATTLE Britain as temperatures continue to TUMBLE

Gust of 60 miles per hour are set to thrash the UK today, as heavy downpours pummel the nation following the arrival of a cold air stream.

Forecasters predict Tuesday to be another cold and breezy day as temperatures persistently fall this winter, with most places struggling to reach double figures.

At the start of the day, neighbouring weather fronts will see a flurry of clouds stretch across Northern Ireland into parts of England and Wales.

As a result, Northern Ireland and sections of England and Wales will battle showers, whereas northeast England and Scotland will be blessed with the early morning sunshine.

The best of the sunshine will be in Scotland, where it is expected to be particularly sunny during the day.

Weather presenter Matt Terry reported from East London, where he warned BBC Breakfast viewers Tuesday would be breezy due to winds picking up speed.

“It is much, much windier, some of the windiest conditions to be found today will be in northern Scotland, where we’ll see some gales at times.”

Also a few showers will ruffle the north, as well as strong winds that have been pushed into the far north due to the approaching weather front.

By the afternoon most areas which would have been affected by the cloud and mist should clear up, leaving most areas bright.

However, in the far south in places such as Northern Ireland and the west midlands it is likely the patchy rain will continue.

Tuesday will be blustery for much of the UK as the winds are a lot stronger than they have been, especially in northern England and Scotland.

Some of the gusts could reach 60 miles per hour in the northern isles, helping to spread the showers in the far north.

Tomorrow the next weather system coming in from the Atlantic will strike the area of high pressure, which is pushing the weather front towards the UK.

The process is going to be the source of a fair amount of cloud, particularly in parts of Northern Ireland and western Scotland, where they will be some patchy rain.

In the afternoon the rain in north west Scotland will start to turn heavier, although temperatures are set to increase with London likely to see a high of 18 Celsius.

With freezing temperatures forecast bookmaker Ladbrokes have slashed odds from 6-4 to 10-11 that any part of the UK sees snow before the month is out.

Ladbrokes spokesperson Alex Apati said: “With temperatures soon set to plunge, punters are seemingly confident in October snow.”

The firm recently put odds on this month to go down in history as the coldest October on record, with the latest bets at 7-2.

Alex said: “With temperatures already beginning to drop, we wouldn’t be surprised to see this October go down as the coldest on record.”

BBC Breakfast airs weekdays on BBC One at 6am.
