Parts of Birmingham, Nottingham and Oxford are set to be worst affected by the gale-force winds next week. The temperature is set to rise back up again from single digits back to the low double figures by the end of the weekend.

The Met Office outlook reads: “Fine at first in the east on Tuesday before more prolonged, organised rain arrives in the west, with fresh to strong winds.

“Through the first few days of this period, Atlantic systems will continue to move in from the west, bringing heavy rain and strong, locally gale-force winds.

“Some rainbands could become slow-moving with locally large rainfall accumulations possible, particularly over western hills.

The report continued: “Temperatures generally around or a little above average.

“The rest of October will continue to see unsettled and windy weather arriving from the Atlantic, with outbreaks of potentially heavy rain for many.

“Wettest in the west and northwest, but still with brief dry interludes.

“Driest conditions likely across some south and south-eastern areas.”

In recent days Storm Aurore has caused floods, strong gusts and snowfall in parts of the country.

On Wednesday night, wet weather came on as Storm Aurore moved in from France.

There was up to 50mm of rain and 45mph gusts.

On Thursday lorry drivers also faced long delays to enter the port of Dover after Storm Aurore hit parts of the south and south-east of England.

Six miles of queues were seen stretching back to Capel-le-Ferne in Folkestone, Kent.
