UK weather forecast: Another wet and windy day across the West Country today but much brighter tomorrow

An area of low pressure following hot on the heels of Storm Brendan will bring another day of wet and windy weather. However, tomorrow is looking much drier and brighter.

That's due to a gap between weather systems, bringing a calmer day midweek, but another front will work in from the Atlantic during Thursday bringing wind and rain again.

For the rest of today it'll stay wet and windy with a Met Office warning for 70 mph gusts around coasts and hills. During the early hours of Wednesday the rain will clear and winds will ease. Temperatures will drop to around 6 Celsius.

There will be a bit of cloud first thing on Wednesday but this should break up to allow plenty of sunshine during the day. It'll be breezy but not as windy as the last couple of days, and there will be a few showers around too. Temperatures won't be as high, reaching 9 or 10 Celsius.

Another spell of wet and windy weather will move through on Thursday, followed by a drier day on Friday with some showers around. High pressure will start to build in during the weekend though, settling things down and bringing a colder feel too.
