Flooding of a few homes and businesses is likely.

On BBC Breakfast this morning Matt Taylor the weather reporter forecast Scotland would see rain “come and go” across the west.

Discussing today’s weather, he began: “There is some cold weather on the way enjoy today it’s the mildest day of the week.

“We could see some gales develop as that breeze picks up. Northern Ireland will also turn much much wetter later on.”

He added: “The breeze does boost the temperature, as i said, it brings that milder air, 12 degrees to central parts of Scotland, maybe 15 north of London.”

He explained that tomorrow will be a slightly different day.

He added: “It’ll be a damp start for Northern Ireland, north Wales, the Midlands and the South East. And it could turn a little bit wintery in the southern Scotland.

On Friday expect an array of thundery showers potentially across some southern areas, and a bitterly cold, windy day across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Temperatures will be hanging around at 3 degrees -and this weekend could see a return of snow flurries.

The Met Office issued warnings for rain, snow, wind, fog and ice.

Matt Taylor finished saying: “It’ll be a cold weekend as the high pressure builds snow flurries – though they look limited to southern parts of the country.”

The Met Office’s meteorologist Alex Deakin stated “it’s going to turn much colder” as the weekend approaches.

Mr Deakin said: “If you thought spring was imminent well you could be in for a shock, it’s going to turn much colder as we go into the weekend.

“Colder air will return across the UK means the return of night time frosts and a significant wind chill especially this weekend making it feel bitter once more.

“The big question is will we see snow returning?”
