HEAVY rain is set to batter the UK as Brits face a week of downpours and bitterly cold winds.
A cold spell is forecast to sweep through the country lasting until next Thursday – making it another week of miserable weather for many Brits.
Downpours, heavy at times, will move northeastwards throughout the day.
There will be a mixture of gusts, sunny spells and showers next week, with a polar “ice bomb” expected to arrive before Christmas.
