BRITAIN is braced for stormy weather over the next two days as torrential rain, thunder and gale force winds sweep the country.
After a frosty start this morning, forecasters are warning of "damaging" gusts battering parts of the country later today.
BBC forecaster Helen Willetts said: ""Gale force winds will usher in clusters of heavy showers, hail and thunder in their midst.
"Little bit of sunshine in between but it is going to feel a lot cooler again because of those strong and gusty winds, which could cause some damage across England and Wales, potentially."
