Carol Kirkwood of the BBC Weather Service warns that stormy weather will hit the UK this weekend.

Stormy conditions are anticipated to resume by the weekend, according to BBC WEATHER, following Storm Evert last week.

Carol Kirkwood of BBC Weather predicted showers and chilly temperatures to start the week before becoming more unstable. It comes after Storm Evert, which hit Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly on Thursday evening and caused wind gusts of up to 70 mph. “As we progress through this week, the weather remains unsettled,” Ms Kirkwood added. For many of us, today will be rather dry; there will be occasional showers, and it will be a cold start to the day; however, it will become wetter and windier later in the week.

“We have a small ridge of high pressure across us today, trying to keep things calm, but a weather front is approaching Northern Ireland.

“That will bring rain, and as it moves east, it will get less intense.

“As the day progresses, we should expect some lighter rain showers across mainland Britain.

“There will also be a lot of cloud in the northern and eastern portions; we’ll keep it throughout Scotland, and we’ll see further showers break out across the rest of England and Wales throughout the day.”

“Temperatures today range from 12C in cloudy Lerwick to 20C in London, and if you’re in the sun with mild winds, it won’t feel too bad,” she continued.

“We’ll lose the thundery element this evening and overnight, but we’ll keep some of those showers with some mist patches forming.

“Not particularly cold, with overnight lows ranging from 8 to 13 degrees Celsius.”

As Storm Evert continues to hammer the South East of England, two women have been critically hurt by a fallen tree in Suffolk.

The Met Office has issued weather and flood warnings for the weekend, with thunderstorms and heavy rain expected.

Yellow wind warnings have been issued for coastal areas in the South East and East Anglia, as well as thunderstorm warnings for a large area of England stretching from Nottingham to Norwich and north to Hull.

It comes after an oak tree fell at a private outdoor party near Heveningham, prompting Suffolk police to respond.

“Officers are now at the site of an incident near Heveningham where.”Brinkwire Summary News,” the force stated in a statement.
