BRITAIN is set to experience a mixed bag of weather this week, with sunshine, heavy rain, powerful winds and snow expected across the country.
There are 129 weather warnings in place this week, with the worst conditions moving in on Monday afternoon.
The Met Office have enforced 120 weather warnings for England this week.
There are six flood warnings issued for Scotland and one in place for Wales.
Monday will kick off a dry start to the week, with morning sunshine expected to wake the country.
The North East will experience a more slippery start, with some ice expected on the grounds, however no weather warnings are in place.
Conditions will then take a turn, as strengthening rain will build across the country and see conditions deteriorate in the afternoon.
Heavy rain will hit the country on Monday evening, particularly in Wales and North West England.
Flood warnings remain across the country, which has already been battered by Storm Ciara, Dennis and Jorge.
The warnings remain in place from Monday afternoon through to Tuesday midday, which is when the country will experience the heaviest of the expected rainfall.
As much as three inches of rain will fall in the warning areas, which spread from North West England to Wales.
Tuesday's forecast is gloomy, as the rain will spread across the south slowly throughout the day.
Showers will also follow to the North on Tuesday.
As of midday, windy conditions will pick up – with gusts of 40 mph expected to hit the south.
The country will see a maximum temperature of 15 degrees in the south, and a chilly low of 3 degrees in the north.
The cold from the north will continue from Wednesday through to Friday, with the UK warned to rug up against the wintry conditions.
On Thursday the gusts will gain even more power with 50mph coastal winds set to cause havoc.
Wintry showers are also expected in the north on Thursday.
The Met Office warns up to three centimetres of snow could fall in the hills of northern England, Ireland and Scotland – however it will be falling in the midst of the showers, so not everyone will be able to see it.
The mixed weather bag of occasional sunshine means the snow is also likely to melt before Brits can get outside to enjoy the brief icy fall.
