Office Meteorologist Alex Deakin warned southern Scotland will see wet weather arrive on Saturday morning with some snow. He warned it will “mostly be over the hills but there will be some at lower levels”. Northwest England and parts of Wales will see heavy rain which “could cause some problems”. Wales and southern England will see continuing blustery weather with warnings in place for strong winds.
Mr Deakin warned: “In coastal areas this wind could reach 60-65mph.”
Throughout Saturday, there will be continuing outbreaks of snow across parts of Scotland which will turn to rain across the south.
There will be ongoing wet weather across northwest England and most of west Wales.
Large parts of the east Midlands, east Anglia and southern England will stay mostly dry but it will remain “blustery”.
Northern Ireland will see showers with the very far north of Scotland remaining dry.
However, Mr Deakin warned it will remain cold with temperatures set to drop to four degrees celsius in the higher regions which are expecting snow.
He said: “In some areas of Scotland temperatures will struggle to get much above freezing.”
In the south, it will remain mild with some areas expected to get temperatures into the teens but it will feel colder because of the wind.
By Saturday evening, the wet and windy weather will sweep its way across England and Wales with snow only slowly easing across Scotland.
Sunday will see a lot of showers and some sunshine as the weather system clears away.
Temperatures will drop in England and Wales with the wind chill making temperatures feel between two and three degrees.
