Northamptonshire will be windy and increasingly wet as the weatherbomb passes over the UK, says a local weather station.

Pitsford Hall Weather Station says tomorrow will again be a windy day, and there will continue to be scattered outbreaks of rain.

These will be light for the most part, but will tend to become heavier and more prolonged through the late afternoon and evening.

The rain is expected to continue overnight, still heavy, with some surface water flooding possible in places.

Some particularly strong south-westerly winds are likely for a time during the evening, but this wind should ease as the rain moves through.

Temperatures tomorrow will match those of today with highs reaching 6C falling overnight to 4C. Once the rain clears, Friday will be a fine day across the county with good spells of sunshine, a light north-westerly breeze and similar temperatures.

As for the weekend, fine on Saturday, but turning wet and windy later on Sunday.

High winds and huge waves are currently affecting north-western parts of the UK as bad weather hits power supplies and travel.

The weather bomb has brought hundreds of lightning strikes, temporarily cutting power across the Western Isles, affecting 17,000 homes.
