Following the powerful storm system that blasted parts of the United Kingdom and northern Europe with damaging winds early this week, the weather pattern will remain unsettled with bouts of rain and gusty winds through at least Sunday.
After a storm system brought showers and gusty winds to the United Kingdom Thursday night, another system on Friday will follow in the footsteps of the early week storm.
That is not to say a repeat of the strongest gusts from earlier this week will occur. While taking a very similar path to the early week storm, Friday's system will not be as potent.
Regardless, wind gusts of 65 to 80 kph (40 to 50 mph) are expected from northern France to western Germany Friday and Friday night. Some rain will also spread over these areas, as well as Wales and England.

Yet another storm system will then bring a chilly rain to Scotland and northern England on Saturday. Strong winds and showers are expected across Wales and the rest of England, as well as Northern Ireland and Ireland.
Wind gusts of 65 to 80 kph (40 to 50 mph) will be common on Saturday across Wales and central and southern England, including London. Such winds could lead to tree damage and power outages, especially where trees, power poles and lines were weakened during the early week storm.
Locally stronger wind gusts threaten to whip places along the western coast.
A new storm will close out the weekend with gusty winds returning to the area from France to Germany Sunday night. These winds could graze the southern coast of England as rain moves through the rest of southern England.
Additional rounds of rain and gusty winds are in store for the United Kingdom and northern Europe through next week as more storms roll through. The strongest of these storms may arrive next weekend.
