    Winds to Cool United Kingdom This Weekend

    One week after the United Kingdom was slammed by once-Hurricane Bertha, a potent storm will kick up brisk winds this weekend.

    The winds will develop in a north-to-south fashion during the weekend as the storm drops from the northern Atlantic Ocean to the North Sea.

    In general, the winds will create a nuisance for those with outdoor plans and a chill in the air.

    Actual high temperatures will be held to the upper teens (60s F) in most communities with southern England climbing to near 20 C (around the 70-degree mark F). The winds will occasionally create lower AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.


    However, gusts to 65-80 kph (40-50 mph) threaten to whip the northern and western coasts of Scotland and Northern Ireland on Sunday. Such winds could cause minor tree damage and sporadic power outages, as well as blowing around and damaging loose lawn items.

    Making the weekend even less ideal for outdoor plans will be periods of rain across Scotland and Northern Ireland. A shower or two will even drift to Dublin and London on Sunday, briefly interfering with weekend activities.

    Some rain will also spread to the Netherlands, northern Germany, Denmark and southern Scandinavia for the second half of the weekend.

    The storm will keep the United Kingdom unsettled on Monday with the continuation of showery conditions.
