Met Office view of 0000 UTC surface analysis

Low pressure lies between Iceland and the UK, with fronts marking areas of rain. The isobars show a northwesterly flow, bringing a cool polar airmass to the UK. Tight isobars in the North sea, associated with the low pressure across Scandinavia leads to strong winds here.
