The UK is bracing itself for an attack of gale-force winds, as gusts of up to 80mph lash the country. The latest weather forecast showed that 60mph to 70mph winds will arrive later today, while the Met Office warned that winds could reach 80mph in exposed locations of northern Scotland.

The temperatures tumbled this week in the UK and after a cold Bonfire Night people will now have to brace themselves for showers and blustery conditions with the worst of the wind in Scotland.

While temperatures are likely to be in double figures this weekend, freezing conditions are not far away and the mercury could drop to -6C by mid-November along with heavy snow.

The Met Office has put a yellow weather warning in place for strong winds that are expected in the north of Scotland until late afternoon on Sunday.

It stated: that strengthening west to north westerly winds will bring gusts of 60-70mph perhaps locally 80mph, to exposed locations of northern Scotland. Strong winds will continue to pick up across parts of Scotland, and there will be heavy showers as well.

The Met Office has already issued severe weather warnings for strong winds until late afternoon on Sunday.

It stated: “Strengthening west to northwesterly winds will bring gusts of 60-70mph perhaps locally 80mph, to exposed locations of northern Scotland.

These winds initially across the Western Isles and north-west mainland Scotland on Saturday
