UK: Remaining Unsettled Through Thursday

Behind one potent area of low pressure that brought heavy rain to much of southern Britain Monday night, the pattern across the United Kingdom will remain unsettled through the middle of the week.

This exiting low pressure will continue to bring spells of heavy rainfall to northeastern Scotland on Tuesday, including the city of Aberdeen where an additional 10-15 mm of rain is expected.

Another frontal boundary will arrive in the wake of this departing storm system to bring another round of moderate rainfall from the Midlands into southern England starting around midday on Tuesday. London and Ipswich will lie in the path of this more significant rainfall. Showery spells will also break out throughout Ireland and southern Wales.

With another area of low pressure spinning just offshore in the North Atlantic, gusty winds will accompany these showers, with occasional gusts to 50 km/h.

The heaviest, steadiest rain associated with the passing frontal boundary will depart to the east Tuesday night, extending into France, Norway and the Netherlands.

However, low pressure will continue to spin nearby, continuing to bring showery spells and gusty winds to the United Kingdom on Wednesday and Thursday. Southeast England, including the city of Southampton, will get the best chances for steadier rain.
