UK: Stormy Spells to Occur Daily in Final Days of November

In the wake of Storm Clodagh on Sunday, spells of rain will occur across the United Kingdom and Ireland on the final day of November. Strong gusts of wind will continue to blow across southern Britain.

Enough cold air will be present for snow to fall in the Northern Highlands and Grampian Mountains.

The bouts of rain and wind will come from a series of depressions into Monday, but "There does not look to be much in the way of heavy rain," stated AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alan Reppert. Gusty wind is expected to be the most significant impact across Wales and southern England.

Only the western coast of Ireland and the higher terrain of Wales and North West England could become subject to localized downpours on Monday. With the ground saturated and streams running high, isolated flash flooding may occur.

Storm Clodagh produced wind gusts exceeded 50 mph (80 km/h) across much of the United Kingdom on Sunday causing travel delays across the Isles. Winds gusted to 79 mph (127 km/h) at High Bradfield and 71 mph (114 km/h) at Needles, according to the Met Office.

Even stronger winds blasted Denmark with a gust of 89 mph (km/h) registered at Hvide Sande.

While it will remain windy across Wales and southern England on Monday, the wind will be lighter across northern areas.

These winds could cause tree damage, sporadic power outages and travel delays. Loose holiday lawn ornaments could easily get tossed around and damaged. Drivers of high-profile vehicles will face hazardous crosswinds.

The winds will hold AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures below-actual temperatures. Chilly air will hold over Scotland with wintry outbreaks across the higher terrain.

The stormy spells will not end with November as a storm approaches the British Isles around the middle of this week.

"The midweek storm will be more compact and move farther to the north than the depressions over the weekend," stated Reppert.

The system has the potential to produce winds in excess of what develops in the final days of November, but such winds may be confined to places from Ireland to western Scotland.

"Winds will likely be less in London than from this [past] weekend and into Monday," added Reppert.

What will be widespread with the midweek storm is the surge of mild air that will be drawn in ahead of it. Temperature highs through the first half of the week are expected to be several degrees milder than average.
