FOUR days of downpours begin TODAY as 47mph winds and an inch of rain an hour is forecast to batter Britain.

Multiple low pressure systems rolling in off the North Atlantic will push bands of rain over central, southern and northern England throughout Friday morning.


Around 32mm of rain (an inch) will fall across these areas and clear south-eastwards to leave sunny spells and showers later in the day.

The wet and windy weather arrives alongside an "active" jet stream off the Atlantic which is pushing rain up from southern England.

Despite the arrival of wind and rain, temperatures remain mild for much of the UK.

Friday will see highs of 18C in London, 17C in Hull, 17C in Plymouth, 15C in Liverpool, and 12C in Aberdeen, with temperatures keeping the wind chill at bay.

And massive gusts of up to 47mph are expected to bash the western edge of Britain as the mixed weather rages on, the Met Office said.
