Speaking to BBC Breakfast weather presenter Matt Taylor warned of strong gusts in northern areas which will arrive on Sunday before temperatures plunge to near-freezing overnight into Monday.

Mr Taylor warned that those in Scotland and northern areas of England are set to be battered by gusts of “between 40 and 70 mph” as gales arrive on Sunday.

But he added how on the tops of some hills in Scotland walkers are expected to be hit by extraordinary “105 mph” winds.

The forecaster added rough seas are also expected of the tip of northern Scotland as “significant” waves of up to “10 metres” high expected to swell.

The forecast explained the lively weather is down to an area of low pressure which is now clearing away from the UK as a ridge of high pressure is following in its wake.

Mr Taylor added how high winds will continue through Sunday but not be as blustery as they are early on.

He added: “Elsewhere across the country compared with yesterday bit more in the way of sunshine.

“There will be varying amounts of cloud, cloudiest of all towards some south and western areas with one or two isolated showers.”

The weather presenter stressed “seasonal norm” temperatures will be felt across the UK on Sunday but will feel fresh in the winds.

Monday will mark the beginning of “colder starts” for Britain as wintery weather begins to set in sending the mercury plummeting.
