BBC Weather forecaster Owain Wyn Evans said the UK can expect more wet and windy weather over the weekend. He noted that a new weather front will move into the UK through Saturday and bring with it strong winds and more rain. Temperatures are expected to fall away as well but frost is unlikely due to the strong winds.

Mr Wyn Evans said: “The low pressure that is driving our weather at the moment is positioned to the north.

“It is swirling all of these weather fronts away and it is also bringing us these strong winds.

“Overnight we saw gusts of 60 or 70mph, we lose this heavy rain across eastern parts of England through Saturday.

“But it is not a dry story, further heavy showers will be moving in from the northwest.

Across the country, temperatures will mostly stay between six and 10 degrees on Saturday during the day.

Mr Wyn Evans continued: “Things should brighten up on Saturday and we should see some sunny spells.
