BRITS face a miserable two weeks of rain, freezing winds and fog after a washout this weekend, forecasters have warned.

Heavy rain will move north across England, Wales and southern Scotland today, followed by sunny spells and isolated showers in the south, according to the Met Office.

Southern and western parts of the UK look set to become cloudy on Monday with outbreaks of rain pushing in.

And unfortunately it looks as though the unsettled weather will not be going anywhere, as miserable conditions are expected to dominate most of October.

The Met Office said the northwest could see heavy showers with a risk of coastal gales starting next week.

Despite the downpours, temperatures should remain around average for this time of the year – although it may feel colder at times in the wind and rain.

A long-range forecast states that, while some drier and brighter spells are likely from October 26 onwards, these will also bring with them more widespread overnight frost and fog.

The Met Office added: “Early signs for mid-November indicate a return to frequent bands of rain and strong winds moving from west to east.”

The dreary outlook comes after Britain was his by storms and flooding this week.

Dozens of flood warnings were issued across the country, mainly affecting the Midlands and the North East.
