The Met Office have issued weather updates after a “meandering jet stream” began to form over the Atlantic this week.
The stream of rain has been running from East to West but today a northerly flow of cold air could cause it to buckle.
The buckling of the stream will have a knock-on affect causing weather systems to develop.
One such system will develop over the UK as the week comes to an end.
This will lead to a band of rain moving south on Friday with the stream covering much of southern England and Wales at the beginning of the weekend.
