UK weather forecast – Sunny spells in store today after Storm Freya wrought havoc with 90mph gales and flash floods… but watch out for MORE showers later

BRITAIN says “see ya” to Storm Freya today as sunny spells sweep across the country following a 90mph battering over the weekend – but more showers are in store.

Many parts will start Monday with clear skies after the 500-mile wide weather front barrelled into the North Sea overnight.

Britain will see sunny spells across the country today – but heavy showers will creep in from the South West. This weather map shows the scene at 3pm today
Westerly winds, as shown in this map depicting the scene at 3pm today, will bring in patchy rain and sunshine

It had sparked a “danger to life” yellow weather warning for much of England and Wales – as monster winds and driving rain brought misery with power cuts and travel chaos.

Today will see a welcome respite from the worst of the weather as long periods of sunshine will be enjoyed throughout much of Monday.

However, more rain will be in store later – with patchy but potentially heavy showers pushing in from the South West from late this afternoon.

This could make it feel colder than average in these parts – with temperatures reaching only 11C.

Sophie Yeomans, Met Office forecaster, said: “Through the day we’ll see the sunshine start to come out.”

She said many will enjoy “clear blue skies and sunshine, especially in central and eastern areas.”

But she added that showers will start sweeping in from the west.

Ms Yeomans added: “It’s only in western areas that we’ll see blustery showers starting to push through, and it will feel cold in the showers with highs of only 10C or 11C.”

RAIN DRIVES IN

Forecasters at Meteogroup UK said: “Early rain on Monday across northeast England and eastern Scotland will soon clear into the North Sea.

“There will then be sunny spells but with showers spreading from the west to most regions, some heavy.

“A breezy day with some strong winds which could affect areas close to the English Channel.”

And the Met Office forecast added: “It will be mainly dry, with some sunshine at first.

“However, often heavy, showery rain will arrive from the southwest this morning, with the risk of thunder.

“It will spread east, although northeast Scotland and northeast England should stay dry.”

Temperatures will struggle to reach high single figures today, with this map showing the scene at 3pm
