Weatherman Matt Taylor warned told BBC Breakfast that 70mph gusts are set to blast parts of the United Kingdom amid heavy rainfall for western regions. The meteorologist told the BBC on Sunday conditions in the south-east were more favourable with temperatures as expected for the time of year. However, the south will likely still see the odd shower swept in from the west coast during the course of the day.
Mr Taylor told BBC Breakfast: “After yesterday’s relentless rain it is going to be a mixture of sunshine and showers.
“Showers most frequent in the west but turning windy again.”
The weatherman highlighted an area of heavy cloud which has gathered in the far north of Scotland.
He said: “It’s producing gusts of winds 60, 70mph in Shetland through this morning.

“That could cause some damage, certainly a bit of disruption as well.”
Mr Taylor continued: “Outbreaks of rain curled around that but away from it dry, sunny starts for many eastern areas.
“The cloud we have in the moment in East Anglia, some rain on the coast clearing away.
“Lot of the day dry some of those showers will be driven eastward through the day as the breeze picks up.”

“Around 11 to 17 degrees.”
