Brits are expected to be faced with torrential downpours and lashing winds from Monday, the Met Office has predicted. The “mild but increasingly unsettled” weather conditions are set to hit most corners of the United Kingdom and continue to do so for much of October.

Temperatures are said to remain cool and barely move away from the low teens.

But the downpours could account for as much as four inches of rainfall.

Such downpours could potentially cause flooding in certain areas.

The Mirror reports the Environment Agency has warned flooding could be “possible but not expected from rivers and surface water in parts of England and Wales on Tuesday until Thursday.”

The agency added: “Local flooding is also possible but not expected from coastal/tidal conditions.

“This is a risk along parts of the coastlines of Wales and south and west England on Wednesday and Thursday, and for parts of the east coast of England on Thursday only.

“Land, roads and some properties may flood and there may be travel disruption.”

According to the Met Office’s website, Monday will see rain in the west spread to the east before heavier downpours on the south coast and west later tonight.

The five day forecast predicts “longer spells” of rain on Wednesday and Thursday and adds it could be “often windy with coastal gales”.

The Met Office’s weather report comes not long after Jim Dale, a meteorologist for British Weather Services, warned the Sun about “a very turbulent period of weather”.

He said: “Low pressure will push in from the Atlantic through the start of the week carrying a lot of rain and putting parts of the country at risk of gales.

“It will turn colder later in the week and there could be a risk of snow which if it comes, will fall over the hills of Scotland.

“The stormy pattern is expected to hold out until the end of the month with a very wet, windy, and possibly stormy, Halloween on the cards.”
