A stormy weather pattern is set to grip the United Kingdom into this weekend and may include a named windstorm.

Rain and gusty winds will descend on the U.K. Wednesday as the first in a series of storms affects the region.

While flooding and travel disruptions will be localized, rain gear will be needed for anyone going outdoors throughout the country.

The greatest risk for flooding and travel delays will be across Wales, northwestern England and eastern Northern Ireland, where prolonged moderate to heavy rainfall is forecast.

Elsewhere, light rainfall will cause a damp day, and gusty winds will make it feel chilly despite actual temperatures hovering several degrees above normal with highs ranging from 12-15 C (54-59 F).

Rain will continue to fall through the day on Thursday from Southwest England into Wales and northwestern England.

Total rainfall from Wednesday into Thursday will be 25-50 mm (1-2 inches), resulting in an elevated risk for flooding and travel disruptions.

A powerful storm system will then approach the U.K. on Friday, bringing the risk for damaging winds and further flooding problems. This system could potentially become a named windstorm.

“Peak wind gusts of 50-75 mph (80-120 km/h) are likely throughout the U.K., especially in exposed coastal and higher-terrain locations,” said AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys.

“Tree damage, power cuts and coastal flooding are other concerns on Friday,” added Roys.

The combination of strong winds and wet conditions will make it feel cold and raw, with AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures under 5 C (41 F) during the afternoon hours.

Dry spells along with occasional blustery showers will occur throughout the U.K. on Saturday as chilly conditions continue.

The potential exists for a third storm to strike on Sunday, bringing another round of locally heavy rainfall and damaging winds.

Areas at highest risk for impacts include London, Cardiff and Manchester.

Additional bouts of rain and wind are expected across the U.K. next week.
