Flights have been grounded at London Airports as a weather warning has been issued across the entire south coast of England.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for wind across the South coast which will remain in place for the rest of Thursday ahead of Storm Nelson.

Heavy wind is expected across the south coast

It comes as the Met Office is predicting a weekend of mixed weather over the Easter weekend.

Met Office forecasters say an area of low pressure responsible for the wet and windy conditions spreading across the UK will clear away on Friday, leaving a mixture of sunny spells and blustery scattered showers through Good Friday.

In any sunshine, it will feel warm, with highs of 14C expected in the southeast of England. However, the showers will be widespread and could turn heavy at times with the risk of the odd thunderstorm.

The driest weather is expected in the far northeast of the UK. After a windy start to the day for many, winds will ease through the day leaving a calmer outlook for the weekend.

Deputy Chief Meteorologist Dan Harris, said: “The weather is expected to gradually improve following the widely unsettled spell of the past few days, with a fairly typical mix of spring-like weather across the UK.

“There will be some sunshine, and it will feel increasingly warm for most as the winds become lighter.

“However, the west and especially southwest is likely to see passing showers too, which could be quite heavy and frequent at times.

“Eastern coastal districts are also likely to feel increasingly cold as an onshore breeze develops, threatening persistent low cloud in some areas too.”

However, the Easter Monday bank holiday is likely to be mostly fine, driest in the north of the UK and with the best of the sunshine reserved for northwest Scotland.

There is a chance however of further rain affecting the south and southeast of England, and a small chance this could end up being much more widespread across England and Wales.
