It's about to get pretty wet and windy in London so if you have any "outdoor plans" this weekend, well, you might want to postpone them for a bit.

Don't be fooled by a fine start on Saturday morning (September 30) - the weather is about to get pretty unsettled with extremely strong winds and downpours.

And the heavy autumnal breeze is expected to grow into Sunday (October 1) and in some areas of the UK could even reach up to 60mph!

According to the Met Office, there is even potential for "tropical weather systems" if remnants of hurricanes Maria and Lee reach UK shores.

Met Office projections show some of these remnants sweeping across the country and over London on Sunday.

Aidan McGivern, Met meteorologist, said: "Low pressure systems will be blowing from the Atlantic, bringing with them some wind and rain and that sticks around throughout Sunday.

"Developments are taking place in the Atlantic, there is one area of low pressure moving in from Canada. There are two other systems, hurricanes Maria and Lee moving north from the tropical Atlantic.

"There is a lot of uncertainty of how these three areas of low pressure will interact with each other before they arrive on our shores."

According to Mr McGivern, the two hurricanes carry "a lot of moisture and warmth" which will mean "a lot of rainfall" for the UK.


Fortunately, the south east will see "some sunshine" among the damp spells, while the north and west will suffer the worse of the rainfall.

Temperatures could even reach the "low twenties" as the remnants of the Atlantic's tropical weather sets in. However, this will "deteriorate" in the evening and into the following morning.

According to the Met Office, temperatures across the capital will reach 17C at around 2pm.

Saturday's weather


It looks like the low pressure from Canada gets in full swing as it "dominates our weather" and "brings in thickening cloud, outbreaks of rain and very windy weather".

Mr McGivern added "there will be heavy prolonged rainfall and very strong winds" before it eases later in the day.

According to the Met Office, there is a a 60% chance of heavy rainfall over London, however temperatures remain unusually high at around 18C.
