    Moving into Saturday, rain will persist across Ireland and the U.K. Along with the spells of rain, gusty south to southeast winds will top 50 kph (30 mph) in many locations. South- and southeast-facing coastal areas can expect winds to gust to around 65 kph (40 mph) at times.

    By Sunday, the core of the storm will shift into France with a soaking rain. Farther north, showers will be scattered across southern England and Wales but isolated elsewhere.

    Amid the stormy weather, millions of people are expected to arrive in Rome for the canonization of Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII on Sunday.

    Following the largely dry weather on Friday, a wave of low pressure will bring some rain and drizzle on Saturday.

    Rainfall will likely persist Saturday night and continue on Sunday for the events in Rome.

    This stormy weather pattern will continue across much of Europe during the first half of next week.
