The Met Office has named a storm that will sweep across the whole of the UK this weekend as Storm Ciara.
They said a system currently developing in the North Atlantic will bring strong winds and heavy rain across the whole of the UK through the weekend and into next week.
Gusts could widely reach 50mph to 60 miles per hour across many inland areas.
In exposed locations, the strongest gusts could reach up to 80 miles per hour.
A yellow National Severe Weather warning for wind has been issued across the entire UK from 6pm on Saturday through the night and all day on Sunday until midnight.
Storm Ciara is expected to bring a range of disruption - affecting power supplies and transport across the whole country.
Neil Armstrong, a chief forecaster with the Met Office, said: "An extremely strong jet stream flowing from North America will be steering a succession of low-pressure systems towards the UK at least into the middle of next week.
"The relative predictability of this pattern has provided an early warning and has given us the certainty to be able to name this storm four days ahead," he said.
Prior to Storm Ciara crashing in, he said high pressure will dominate the UK's weather, with frost and fog in some places and largely fine conditions throughout the day.
Commuters have been warned that fog could be slow to clear on Thursday morning, which could make driving conditions hazardous.
Storm Ciara is the third named storm of the season, which began in September 2019.
When Storm Brendan swept in last month, it caused huge waves in coastal areas of Cornwall.
Conditions will remain unsettled across the UK and it will turn colder with wintry showers and ice in places.
It will also remain very windy after Storm Ciara, the Met Office meteorologists predict.
