The jet stream will bring a series of low pressure systems that will batter Britain in the new week.
The easterly flow of the jet stream will transport a series of low pressure systems towards the UK in succession, this will bring strong winds and rain to some parts of the UK throughout most of the week.
Monday & Tuesday will see rain and strong winds across Merseyside, with gusts reaching 40mph in costal or exposed areas.
The rest of the week will stay unsettled, with further spells of heavy rain and strong winds, towards mid week winds will ease before picking up again as we edge closer to the weekend.

Leon Brown, forecaster for The Weather Channel UK, said: “A strong jet stream is approaching the UK from the Atlantic so we can expect a fast changing weather pattern from the west.
“Monday and Tuesday will be windy everywhere with fresh southwesterly winds inland and strong gales to western coasts”.
Temperatures will gradually drop after the middle of the week and will return to what is average for the time of year.
The gales will not trigger on official storm warning and won’t be given a name by the Met Office due to a lack of intensity.
A storm will be named when it is deemed to have the potential to cause a substantial impact in the UK and/or Ireland.
Remaining unsettled but mild this week, with further spells of wind and rain, especially across the north of the UK. https://t.co/uAucnSzhaR
