Bouts of unsettled weather will continue to target the United Kingdom into at least Monday.
Following bouts of wind and rain the past few days, a new depression will swing across the U.K. on Monday, bringing additional rain and wind.
The strongest wind gusts will target northern and western Britain. While much of the U.K. will have showery periods, the most prolonged rainy spells will be reserved for western Scotland, Wales and the south of England.

The most likely area to remain dry on Monday will be across northeast England and southeast Scotland. Aberdeen, Dundee and Middlesbrough are among areas that will be largely dry with bright or sunny periods.
Across southern Britain, from Cardiff to London, several hours of rain will lead to a wet morning and afternoon. Towards evening, drier weather will gradually make a return as a cold front clears to the east.
Gusty winds generally on the order of 35-45 mph (56-72 km/h) will accompany the rain. However, there can be gusts of 55-65 mph (88-105 km/h) at coastal and exposed areas of western Scotland.

While Monday will not be as warm as Sunday across southern Britain, temperatures will remain rather mild with highs ranging from 12-14 C (54-57 F). Highs around 10 C (50 F) are more common this time of year.
A gusty breeze, however, will blow to create slightly lower AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures.
Cooler air will make a more southward progress with Monday’s system, sweeping away the weekend warmth and bringing temperatures closer to normal by Tuesday.
The U.K. may remain unsettled through at least midweek, but a drier weather pattern should unfold for next weekend.
