It’s that time of the year when the Met Office and Met Eireann name their list of storms for the 2017-18 season. Interestingly there is a possibility that the first name, Aileen could be named for the deep low expected to sweep across the UK tomorrow evening into Wednesday.

As for today, it’s a case of sun and blustery showers with a distinctly cool feel in exposure to the NW flow on the rear of LP between Orkney and Shetland.

Wind gusts of 50+ mph are occurring in parts of southwestern England and Wales.

We catch a bit of a breather during early and mid Tuesday with brighter skies and lighter winds but showers are still around but fewer and further between.

Then later Tuesday, heavy rain and wind moves in as a deep, tightly wound low moves across Ireland and enters NW England.

Yellow wind warnings are in place for Tues night into Wed morning.

Once that low passes, a large high builds to the west leaving us in a raw NNW flow later Wednesday through Friday.

That high topples in over the UK through the weekend. Watch for colder nights with rural frost possible beneath the clearer, calmer skies.
