Wind and rain is expected to ravage the UK on the first Friday that people have been allowed to meet in large groups outside in England.
Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern has described Friday and Saturday’s outlook as a “showery situation” and with conditions becoming drier on Sunday.
A yellow weather warning for winds that could cause travel disruption is in place for the southwest of England from 3pm on Friday, with 60mph gusts expected on the coast, PA reports.
Mr McGivern said: “It’s going to be a wet and windy start for many on Friday morning.
“The heaviest rain will be in north-west England, parts of Wales, and then increasingly in the South West, the Midlands and the rain reaching the South East by the end of the afternoon as a showery situation develops.
“Eastern Scotland, as well as north-east England, stays dull and damp throughout much of the day – and with the wind in the North East it’s going to feel raw.”
Forecasters have predicted up to 100mm of rainfall on higher ground in Wales.
Daytime temperatures are set to be low for the time of year, with the mercury expected to rise to around 14C London, and 12C in Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast.
Night-time temperatures are predicted to sit around the mid-single figures.
A blustery night with hill snow on the mountains in Scotland is due to follow into Saturday, with more wind and rain across the board to follow.
Sunday is set to be slightly more promising, with showers again expected across the nation but longer dry, bright spells moving in.
Forecasters have said northern Scotland and Northern Ireland are likely to see the best of the sunshine on Sunday.
