Storms to hit the capital tonight and Monday Photo:

STORMY WEATHER LATER TONIGHT AND INTO THE MORNING RUSH HOUR

MONDAY'S STORM

Southern England and Wales will be in the firing line forsome nasty conditions through tonight and into tomorrow morning.

Winds could peak at 60-80mph through this time - that's strong enough to blow down trees and cause structural damage. There is also the risk of some heavy rain - leading to potential flooding.

Keep an eye on the forecast, particularly if you areplanning to travel during this time.

THE REST OF SUNDAY

It's bright and breezy outside - and despite a few showers during the day there will be a lot of dry weather. Temperatures will be slightly lower than recently peaking at 15C during the afternoon.

SUNDAY NIGHT

The first of the rain from the overnight storm will reach usaround mid evening. The wind will then strengthen after midnight.

The worse time to be caught outside will between midnight and 0900 on Monday morning. If you don't have to travel on Monday - don't!

MONDAY

The rain and strongest winds should have cleared the South East by mid morning. The rest of the day will be blustery with passing showers and some sunshine. It will feel cooler in the wind with highs of 16C.

TUESDAY

Blustery showers continue into Tuesday and temperatures will struggle to 13C.

WEDNESDAY

Wednesday looks like the driest day of the week, with lighter winds and some sunshine. Highs will reach 16C.

THURSDAY

More rain pushing across early on Thursday morning - with a strengthening wind as well. Much of Thursday looks wet as a weather front wavers across the region throughout the day.

FRIDAY

Thursday's rain will be reluctant to clear but Friday shouldimprove through the day.

Despite a week of rain, showers and wind - the cold airstays away which means no night frosts and when the comes out some pleasantlymild moments by day.

Have a good week and please take care tomorrow morning.
