Tail end of Gert blows in with gusts up to 50mph.
THUNDERY showers and winds gusting up to 50mph will blow in today as the tail end of Hurricane Gert crosses Scotland.
The slow-moving weather front edging in from the west is bringing rain and strengthening winds.
Coastal areas could see winds of 25-35mph with gusts of up to 50mph in squally conditions.
Winds will persist tonight with the chance of thundery showers.
Forecaster Dave Reynolds, of The Weather Channel, said the system would edge away towards Europe.
He added: "Low pressure associated with the cold front will pass to the north bringing freshening winds.
"This will maintain fresh winds and showers over the British Isles with the odd thunder shower."
Strong winds and showers will gradually ease for most on Saturday.
It will turn wet and windy in the west on Sunday. But Scotland isn't likely to benefit from warmer weather on Monday with temperatures in southern England set to rise to 80F . Met Office forecaster Luke Miall said: "We might see a bit of a northsouth split developing. The wet and windy weather will be to the north and west of the UK."
