Strom Freya might have passed but more bad weather is on it's way to the UK.

Britain was battered by gales, rain and snow as the sixth named storm of the 2018/2019 season struck on Sunday.

Wind speeds reached nearly 80mph in some places, trees were felled and roads closed as the weather caused disruption.

The Met Office said on Monday morning that the storm had passed into the North Sea overnight, easing winds in the east, but warned of continuing unsettled conditions.

A spokesman said: "The jet stream is bringing us a more unsettled pattern. The pattern is on repeat for the rest of the next few days and indeed into the weekend."

While conditions are not expected to surpass those of Storm Freya, there will be a risk of heavy rain and wind.

Monday morning will be mainly dry, but heavy, showery rain with a risk of thunder, will arrive from the south west and spread east.

Overnight, the showery rain will move eastwards, with some clear spells, but further heavy rain will follow in from the south west.

Hail and hill snow is possible in the north, with windy conditions in the west.

The outlook for Wednesday and Thursday includes occasional heavy rain and strong winds at times.

Friday is expected to be drier and brighter, with sunny spells.
