Strong winds will continue to batter the United Kingdom and Ireland Monday afternoon as yet another powerful storm impacts the island nation.
The powerful storm will make the trip moved from Iceland to Scotland on Sunday, before eventually moving into Germany Monday afternoon.
Between consistent showers, high winds and general cloudiness, the storm is expected to lead to dreary conditions across the region during the early week.
There is even the potential for significant wind damage. Winds could gust to 60 mph or higher across northwest Scotland on Monday -- easily strong enough to bring down power lines, trees and even lead to structural damage.
Farther south, the wind gusts are not expected to be as strong; however, the combination of wet soil with consistently strong winds will likely bring down trees, especially across Wales and central England. Gusts in both places are expected to peak at around 50 mph Monday night.
Even London has the possibility to see gusts past 40 mph on Tuesday.
The storm also means a turn to colder weather for the region. Highs in Edinburgh at the end of January and in early February have been in the 50s and 40s, but on Monday highs in the city will likely never leave the 30s.
As a result, hilltop snow will be possible, especially in the Scottish Highlands, where snow is typical this time of year. There is even the chance for snow to mix with rain in London on Monday night; however, an accumulation will not be easy to achieve.
Following the storm, smaller storms are likely to continue to impact the region and near to below normal temperatures will likely continue.
