UK and Europe weather forecast latest, November 2: Severe weather with torrential rain set to batter Britain
UK's weather forecast
The Met Office has issued two yellow weather warnings, one for rain and one for wind. The yellow rain warning covers areas in Wales and north-west England. The weather warning for wind is set for areas in the far north-west of Scotland.
According to Express, in England, there are total of 18 flood alerts in place. The Met Office has said “fast flowing or deep floodwater is possible, causing a danger to life” for areas affected by the yellow rain warning.
It also warned: “Delays or cancellations to train and bus services are possible. Spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures. Some communities may be cut off by flooded roads.”

It added that power cuts to some homes is possible in the areas affected. In Scotland, the strong winds will also impact travel. The Met Office forecast: “Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely."
“Probably some bus and train services affected, with some journeys taking longer.”
The severe winds in Scotland are expected to reach up to 75mph gusts. A Met Office meteorologist stated: “A cloudy and wet start to the day on Sunday.
“Storm Aiden will have cleared away but we see another area of low pressure bringing further wet and windy weather. The winds will be particularly strong in the northwest, especially for western Scotland where we could see gusts of 70 to 75 mph.”
The rain on Sunday will be heavy and persistent throughout the day and into the evening.

The meteorologist added: “That rain again turning heavier through the evening time particularly over the hills across Wales and Southwest England and into Northern England as well.”
The Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Martin Young, said the second weather system set to come on Sunday will contain the “remnants of ex-Hurricane Zeta” which will bring the further heavy rain and strong winds.
But as Britain heads into next week, the weather looks to be more promising. Monday is expected to bring drier conditions but cooler temperatures are also set to sweep over the UK.
The Met Office meteorologist said: “There’s still some more wet and windy weather to come this weekend but looking ahead to next week it could be a bit drier and a bit colder too.”

They added: “Looking ahead to the end of the week and into the start of next week, rain will clear away on Monday.
“We’re left with breezy conditions and scattered blustery showers Monday and Tuesday before Wednesday high pressure starts to building and that could mean a spell of drier and colder weather with more widespread frosts.”

Europe's weather forecast
BBC Weather forecaster Darren Bett said northwestern parts of Europe will see some of the wettest weather over the next few days due to Storm Aiden. He forecasted heavy rain on Saturday evening and another band of rain and wind to strike the UK, Scandinavia and parts of central Europe by Sunday evening. Mr Bett said: "This weekend looks generally dry across much of the Mediterranean but it will continue to be unsettled in the further north.

"On Saturday we have had Storm Aiden sweeping to the north-west of the UK. That is moving away but by Sunday there will be some more wind and rain coming into the UK. Storm Aiden will be spilling itself into other northwestern parts of Europe."
The BBC Weather forecaster added southern Europe would be mostly dry over the next few days into the new week. There will be some rain in the west of Europe but some sunshine and warm temperatures also to balance it out.
Mr Bett continued: "On Sunday it is still dry for much of the Mediterranean and there will be some sunshine around Athens. We have got some storms moving across more northern parts of Turkey and into the Black Sea."
"It should be dry through the Balkans as well but further north we have got more wet weather coming into Scandinavia. It will also come in across Germany and strike Poland by the end of the day as well."

The weather forecaster explained what Europe could expect going into the new week. He said: "On Monday it is the northwest that sees more unsettled conditions. There will be further bands of wet and windy weather sweeping here into Scandinavia."
"Some of that rain will be arriving the north west corner of Iberia and the weather here is going to change. It is going to be turning much wetter in Spain and Portugal as it is turning drier in the north-west of Europe."
"It will be turning dry but also turning colder as well and that theme is set to continue."
