The wind and rain battering large swathes of the UK this week will continue through the weekend, according to forecasters from the Met Office and the Environment Agency.

For most of south west London and Surrey, the forecast is pretty gloomy.

Although today should remain sunny but cold, Saturday is expected to have the worst of the weather, with single digit temperatures and almost constant rain.

Clearer skys on Sunday should mean a bright day with plenty of sunshine in the afternoon, but that will mean it will feel even colder with high winds continuing to batter the region.

The Met Office has given a severe weather warning for most of the UK from 9am on Saturday to 9pm on Sunday.

The South has been particularly badly affected, with winds reaching at least 70mph overnight.

The Environment Agency has issued two Flood Warnings for the South East, and a further 33 flood alerts.

Heavy rain this week has caused flooding in many areas across the country. A man died in floods in Somerset, and hundreds were left stranded in their cars by impassable roads.

In London, the floods have caused disruption to journeys, including train services to the West.
