Warmer weather this weekend is expected to be overshadowed by winds and the return of rainy spells on Saturday and Sunday, but temperatures are expected to hit highs of 16C (60.8F) by mid-week next.

Clouds are expected to part to the north and east today for a sunny spring afternoon before the showers return and the south and west will have a wet start with a brief break to catch a few rays.

It comes as the Met issued yellow weather wind warnings for this weekend, concentrated in the South West and Wales on Saturday and including the Irish coast and the North West on Sunday.

The warning, which predicts winds of up to 65mph along the exposed coast, can ’cause transport and coastal disruptions’.

Transport delays are also likely and “coastal communities will be affected by sea spray and/or large waves”.

While most of the weekend will be ‘unstable’, a Met Office spokesman said, the middle of next week ‘will bring calmer weather’ which will give way to warmer temperatures.

The showers, windy weather and sunny spells this weekend will subside and next week is expected to reach temperatures as high as 16C (60.8F) in London.

The spokesman added: “From the start of next week, Monday will start drier, with lighter winds.” Temperatures will start to drop, but nighttime temperatures will still be suppressed – from Monday evening to Tuesday, even in London, it is expected to be five degrees.

“We were also able to see mist and fog forming in some places.”

He explained that the period of unstable weather, “low pressure system coming from the Atlantic”, is what brings the strong winds and potentially heavy rain to the affected regions overnight, but the next week sees a system of high pressure, with more stable weather on the horizon.
