Heavy rain is expected in the United Kingdom as 62mph Atlantic storms form.

Beginning Sunday night, the United Kingdom will be drenched by two inches of rain.

According to maps and charts, most of the UK will be soaked in heavy rains moving across from the Atlantic following a calmer weekend. Winds are expected to increase up as well, with 62mph gusts expected along the shore.

“The portals to the Atlantic open up this weekend,” British Weather Services’ Jim Dale told This website.

“Most areas of the UK have been mostly dry over the past fortnight, and any rain that has fallen has been much below average for this time of year,” he said.

“However, the precipitation expected between this weekend and next weekend will range from 25 to 50mm (one to two inches) in most cases, but between 50 and 85mm in the wetter northwest, with NW Scotland being the most vulnerable.”

“It’ll be a big change, and the rain will be accompanied by heavier winds at times (but no named storms yet).”

Stormy weather will resume over the weekend, according to AccuWeather senior meteorologist Adam Douty.

“A stormy weather pattern appears to be developing across the UK beginning early next week as several areas of low pressure travel eastward from the Atlantic into northwestern Europe,” he warned.

“Several rounds of rain and wind are expected across the region.”

“While it’s unknown whether any of these systems will develop into a windstorm, they can bring wind gusts of 30-40 mph to many regions, and possibly 50-60 mph along the generally windy areas of the west coast, causing travel problems.”

“This trend appears to be sticking around for the rest of the week, and it could last until the end of October.”

WXCharts maps indicate a wet weather front pushing westward from 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Northern Ireland will receive up to 2mm of rain per hour by midnight, before the weather front moves over the UK by 3 a.m. on Monday.

Monday will be a wet start to the week, with rain showers and 1mm per hour downpours across much of the country.

However, the worst rain is expected in Plymouth and the southwest of England, with up to 5mm per hour expected by 9 a.m.
