GRITTERS are out on Swindon roads this evening, as temperatures fall overnight.

It comes as official forecasters warn of wet and windy weather to come later this week. 

Storm Eleanor will hit the UK on Tuesday evening, bringing winds of up to 80mph. 

The Met Office's chief forecaster, Paul Gundersen, said: “The unsettled theme continues throughout this week, with further spells of rain moving across the UK from the west as many return to work on Tuesday, and there will again be some snow over the high ground in Scotland.

“The wind will pick up again later on Tuesday and Wednesday as developing Storm Eleanor heads towards the UK and Ireland.

"Storm Eleanor will bring a very windy spell to the UK on Tuesday night and Wednesday with gales or severe gales in places and National Severe Weather Warnings have been issued as there is the potential for some travel disruption, and high waves throwing beach material on to sea fronts, roads and coastal properties, along western and southern coasts.”
