The Met Office has warned Brits that we will be pelted by heavy gale force wind and torrential rain over the weekend, as temperatures continue to fall.

However they have added that by the time the weather hits us, it'll be "nothing scary".

Thankfully we won't need to worry too much and will just need to pack our brollies and avoid wearing any floaty dresses.

England and Wales will have cloudy skies throughout today, with Scotland and Northern Ireland experiencing some bright sunshine with light rain and cold breezes.

This weekend, we won't see temperatures hit any higher than 19C, which is disappointing following the 32C heatwaves we've recently experienced.
