Britain to enjoy drier weather briefly before it’s struck by wind and rain again

A day of relatively calm weather is likely to only be a brief respite for Brits as windy and wet conditions quickly return.

Today will be mainly dry across the country with some sunshine, although there will be scattered showers in the west.

The clear skies will continue into Friday evening, with the west of the country again in for a chance of some outbreaks of rain.

Saturday will be mostly cloudy, while early rain on Sunday will clear to welcome in sunshine and showers later in the day.

But the Met Office is warning that Britain faces the unwelcome return of wet and windy weather next week.

Forecasters Meteogroup UK say: "It will become very unsettled on Monday with plenty of cloud, rain and strong south-westerly winds, especially in the west."

The forecast could provide more uncertainty and concern to hundreds of parts of the country still on high alert following the 'wettest February on record'.

Forceful winds and rain during Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis saw Britain battered by the weather last month.

With many parts of the country still coping with the carnage caused by flooding, many more areas are still being warned of potential dangers.

As of this morning, there are 59 flood warnings in place, warning residents that "immediate action" is needed to prepare for expected flooding.

Areas across the south of England are currently at flood risk, including the River Medway in Kent and the River Severn in Worcestershire.
