Almost a week of rain is likely to fall in Britain on Monday. The hardest hit area with these approaching rains is expected to be Wales, west of England and Scotland.
Up to 20mm of rain with strong winds of 60mph will batter United Kingdom, all thanks to a weather system moving in from the Atlantic.
Today rain and thundershowers were observed in parts of north, east and west of Britain. Meanwhile, the rest of the country enjoyed some bright sunshine.
According to forecasters, Sunday will have mostly overcast sky. These heavy spells of rain will affect most parts of the country on Monday moving slowly eastwards.
About 15 to 20mm of rainfall is expected on Monday where the normal average is about 100mm for the month of February. It is about a fifth of rainfall for the month in just one day.
Wales may witness gusts of 45mph to 50mph, while the Scottish coast could get winds of 55mph to 60mph.
The rain is expected to move away by Tuesday, but it will continue to grip the east coast. Also the winds will not be as strong during this time.
Weathermen have described the weekend's weather as a north-south split.
The northern parts of UK are expected to be blustery with more heavy rain; in fact the higher reaches may witness snowfall too. Meanwhile the southern parts of UK, apart from a few showers, will remain a dry day with light winds and bright sunshine.
