The UK will see lots of rain and possibly snow in the coming days, while an amber weather warning for wind has been put in place.
Conditions will improve late next week, when the north-south divide will be prominent and temperatures in the south will be noticeably milder.
Amber and yellow weather warnings have been put in place for Saturday, Sunday and Monday across the north of the country and across Scotland.
Temperatures will be milder in the southwest of the country and cooler in the northeast.
Moving further into the second half of next week from Tuesday to Thursday, the Weather Bureau expects temperatures to be milder than average for this time of year, with only a few cooler spells possible, most likely in northern parts.
