The northern United Kingdom will face the brunt of what will become an unsettled week with frequent bouts of rain and gusty winds.
Following a tranquil day across the U.K. on Sunday, a shift back to unsettled weather will begin on Monday.
Cold fronts will frequently cross the British Isles this week, each producing a bout of rain and wind.
The wettest and windiest conditions accompanying each front are expected to focus primarily on Northern Ireland, Scotland and Northern England creating the greatest disruptions to travel and outdoor plans.
Despite the consecutive rainy spells, any flooding incidents would be isolated events as repeated bouts of heavy rainfall are not anticipated.
The rest of Wales and the south of England should face less impacts as rainfall will generally be limited to odd showers. A moderate to fresh breeze may accompany most of the fronts.
Rainy spells will kick off the new week targeting the northern U.K. on Monday into Tuesday. Wind gusts over 30 mph (48 km/h) are expected Monday night into Tuesday across Scotland, Northern Ireland and Northern England. A gusty breeze will prevail elsewhere.
Farther south, a few showers will also graze Wales and South West England on Monday but will hold off reaching London until the nighttime hours.
Commuters in London can instead leave brollies and wellies at home. A dry and seasonable Monday will prevail with highs of around 17 C (63 F).
As quick as the rain from this first system leaves on Tuesday, the next bout of rain and gusty winds will target the northern U.K. later on Tuesday and into Wednesday.
Winds will be more powerful and widespread with this storm system. Again the most powerful winds will howl across Northern Ireland, Scotland and Northern England with frequent gusts of 40-50 mph (65-80 km/h). Gusts to 60 mph (97 km/h) will be possible on exposed coastal and higher terrain.
Residents should prepare for possible sporadic power cuts and disruptions to rail, ferry and air travel. The winds can create hazards for drivers of high-sided vehicles.
Elsewhere across the country wind gusts of 30-40 mph (48-65 km/h) are expected on Wednesday.
Thursday will likely be the most tranquil day across country before the threat for rain and wind return from Friday into the weekend.
