Storms, packing gusty winds and rainy spells, will approach the United Kingdom from the Atlantic Ocean this weekend into next week.
Storms Gertrude and Henry caused widespread travel disruptions across the U.K. with wind gusts over 100 mph (160 km/h) in the Scottish Highlands. While the storms this weekend will bring new rounds of wind and rain, impacts are expected to be less than the previous storms.
The first in this series of storms will arrive on Saturday with rain and wind spreading across the U.K.
Wind gust over 30 mph (48 km/h) will be common; however, the threat of damaging winds or any significant travel disruption will be minimal.
