Instead of being targeted by windstorms, the United Kingdom will have to deal with a cold snap settling in for Valentine’s Day and Monday.
The stormy pattern that allowed Storms Gertrude, Henry and Imogen to batter the U.K. within a 10-day period has ended. Storms with soaking rain and gusty winds will instead be directed at France and Spain into this weekend.
That does not mean that the U.K. will enjoy an extended period of sunshine and mild air. Rainy spells will evolve into wintry showers across the north as cold eventually makes a comeback across the British Isles.
