Weather from across the Atlantic
Meteorologists say the adverse weather is caused by a strong jet stream that propels transatlantic weather systems.
Met Office chief meteorologist Andy Page said: “As Hurricane Franklin sweeps across the UK and pushes into the mainland near this afternoon, wind conditions will gradually ease and showers will be less, leaving some weather dry, sunny weather for many people.
“However, a band of rain and strong winds will reach the northwest tonight and this weather front will move south and east through Tuesday, tapering as it happens.
“Thursday is likely to be the coldest day of the week with some starting to frost. High winds and heavy rain continue to move south and east across the country, wiping out south east england by mealtime lunch.
“The forecast is for a return of showers mainly over the hills to the north, but low snow is possible at times.”
