UK' s weather forecast

Britons is warned to brace for up to 60mph gales this weekend as "concerning" conditions will hit the country over the next 48 hours, according to BBC.

The BBC Weather forecaster said heavy showers will continue to hit north-western parts of the country today with spots of sunshine for the south and the south-east. But Mr Danaos warned winds will begin to pick up overnight and reach up to 60mph for many tomorrow. He said: "Winds are going to get stronger this weekend, last weekend it was pretty windy if you remember, this one's looking even windier. Very unusually windy for July, it's going to feel more like autumn on Sunday but we should see some sunshine as well.

"Today it's a breezy day, not very windy like it's going to be tomorrow. A lot of cloud around the country, thickening up for spots of rain for western Scotland, northern and western England and northern and western Wales."

He added: "It's tomorrow we've got most concerns. This area of low pressure deepening as it moves north of the UK.

"It's going to be very windy. This is a cold front, behind it there's going to be slightly cooler air so it will be cooler tomorrow than it is today."
