Weather maps have shown vicious stormy winds bound for the UK just a week after Storm Babet left its trail of destruction.
The named system shattered homes across the country with gusts reaching 80mph and over, and an accompanying deluge left vast tracts of land under a foot’s worth of floodwater.
Forecasters have now identified a new pattern forming over the Atlantic Ocean.
The latest chapter in the turbulent trend will see the UK battered once more, maps show, as winds reach 60mph in some parts of the country.
Meteorologists also expect temperatures to plummet and that some parts of the country will experience “flood rebound” as rain lashes several regions.

Maps from WXCharts show winds picking up again over the coming weekend, with gusts reaching between 50kmh (30mph) to 60kmh (37mph) between Saturday, October 28 and Sunday, October 29.
Rain will also intensify over those two days, according to Jim Dale, the founder and the Senior Meteorological Consultant at British Weather Services.
Mr Dale told Express.co.uk that a “real cold lodged over Scandinavia” is creating high pressure, leaving lower pressure for the UK.
He said the different atmospheric organisation would bring “rain or showers for us”.

The wet conditions will start “swirling around” in the Atlantic, Mr Dale said, pushing eastern Scotland “back into a flood rebound scenario”.
The Met Office has also predicted a wet weekend, with several weather warnings in place across the UK.
Yellow alerts for rain activate on Northern Ireland’s east coast, the Scottish east coast and on the Southeast English coast early on October 28.
The warnings predict between 20mm and 40mm (0.7 and 1.5 inches) falling widely and 70mm and 100mm (2.7 and four inches) in isolated areas.
The latter warning remains on Sunday, October 29, and in the following week, maps show winds picking up again and with more ferocity.
From November 1 to 2, WXCharts maps show the southeast being struck by gale force winds, with gusts of 103kph (64mph) making their way inland.
The winds could prove much more intense on the coast, where the same maps show gusts exceeding 118kph (73mph).
Over the following days, the winds will dissipate as the system moves north to Scotland, where many Britons will still be reeling from the recent heavy rain.
