Cold weather anticipated for the UK: A massive Atlantic storm is expected to slam the UK in the next 48 hours, with temperatures plummeting.
According to the latest weather maps, the UK is set for a frigid blast as a 70mph storm approaches and sends temperatures dropping.
As an Atlantic storm approaches the UK this week, the country will be pummeled by heavy rain, strong gusts, and lower temperatures.
Powerful gales are expected to build in the Atlantic Ocean starting tomorrow, before crashing towards the UK on Thursday, according to the most recent weather maps.
Over the next 24 hours, WXCharts’ peak wind maps indicate a deep area of red and purple brewing to the west of the UK.
According to the maps, stormy weather will persist over the weekend, with wind gusts reaching 70 mph (113 kmph) at midnight on Sunday, October 3.
This week, the low-pressure weather system is expected to bring severe rain to the UK.
The wettest places are likely to be in western Scotland, Wales, and north-west England.
Some places, primarily in eastern Scotland and eastern England, will have up to 25mm of rain each day, while the rest of the country will see between 10-15mm.
North-west England and south-west Scotland could experience up to 30mm of rain in only 12 hours on Wednesday.
Temperatures will also be drastically different than they have been for much of the last fortnight, which have been in the mid-20s.
Temperatures are predicted to hit single digits in the mornings and early nights for much of the next four days, with highs in the low twenties.
Wales should anticipate 15 degrees by 3 p.m. on Thursday, 13 degrees in the Midlands, and 11 degrees in London, according to the lowest temperature maps.
Temperatures in Scotland are expected to plunge as stormy weather pushes north, with 1C anticipated in northern parts by noon on Friday, according to the maps.
Temperatures could feel closer to freezing during sections of the week, according to wind chill charts.
The temperature differential between the south east and the north west will remain over the weekend.
By 3 p.m. on Saturday, the temperature is expected to be in the low teens in the south and 6C-9C in the north.
“The cooler and fresher air is here to stay for the rest of the week,” TV meteorologist Nick Finnis said. “Areas of low pressure moving through will bring spells of rain interspersed with brighter and showery times.”
“It’ll be windy a lot, too,” says Brinkwire Summary News.
