There are already yellow and amber weather warnings in place across parts of the UK
The UK is braced for strong winds, heavy rain, flooding and snowfall in a change to the unseasonably warm weather.
There are yellow rain warnings in place until 6pm on Friday across the east of Scotland and the north-east of England.
Meanwhile, an amber rain warning is in place for the north-east of Scotland from the early hours until 3pm.
Met Office meteorologist Tom Morgan said amber warning areas would experience more than 100mm of rain.
“With this kind of rainfall, we are expecting some flooding,” he said.
Mr Morgan said coastal areas would also be battered by strong winds.
“We have very strong onshore winds and very large waves,” he added.
“There may be some disruption to transport, including ferries and the road network.”
He added that yellow warning areas might also see some flooding.
