Weather warnings for wind and rain remain in place today but some parts of the UK will enjoy a spot of sunshine in the wake of a band of rain moving north east across the country.

Northern Ireland and Scotland can expect windy conditions for much of the day, with northern and eastern parts of Northern Ireland facing gusts of up to 70mph.

A band of rain will move north east across the UK, leaving drier and calmer conditions in its wake in parts of Wales and central and southern England.

Kate Brown from the Met Office said conditions are set to be more pleasant.

“We could see some sunshine this afternoon across southern England and Wales, with top temperatures of around 15C, which is pretty mild for this time of year.

“There is still a risk of showers in some parts though.”

The Environment Agency has 20 flood alerts in place across the South East, the West, the Midlands and Pembrokeshire in Wales.

There is also a warning of some localised flooding following heavy rainfall in many areas yesterday.

Overnight almost 20mm of rain fell in Katesbridge, Co Down, while Bodmin Moor in Cornwall saw gusts of 57mph.

Yesterday winds speeds of almost 100mph were recorded on the south coast of England.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency said it is expecting further heavy rain in Tayside, Angus and Aberdeenshire through today and into the weekend.
