BRITS are bracing themselves for a weekend of torrential downpours and strong winds as flood alerts are raised.

The UK has seen unseasonably warm temperatures throughout October, with the Met Office reporting that temperatures in Central England have been 1.5C warmer than in previous years.

This week’s African plume saw hot air from Africa pushing the mercury up to more than 20C in some parts of the country, but it seems that the freak weather fronts are not over yet.

Four flood alerts are in place in England, with warnings that local flooding is possible from surface water in the north and east of England today (Friday).

While temperatures continue to be mild for this time of year, a large low-pressure weather front is currently moving across the Atlantic towards the UK, holding the present weather front in place.

This combination will likely bring a mix of heavy rain and wind as we go into the weekend and will last into next week.

From Sunday to Tuesday the weather stays mild and unsettled throughout with heavy rain, thundery in places, from the southwest through Sunday. Going into next week there will be a mix of sunshine and showers with the driest and brightest areas in the east, while coasts will be windy.
