UK weather: Met Office issues fresh yellow warnings for southwest and eastern England | Weather News

Large parts of England could face travel disruption and some flooding as heavy rain hits later today, the Met Office has said.

The forecaster has issued a yellow weather warning for rain which covers from Newcastle and its surrounding areas down to East Anglia, along England’s east coast. This comes into force at 7pm and lasts until 12pm on Sunday.

Another fresh yellow warning for rain, which comes into effect at 6pm, covers much of Cornwall, as well as parts of Devon and Somerset. That warning lasts until 6am tomorrow morning.

Under the warnings, people are urged to be aware that flooding of homes and businesses is possible, while disruption on the roads and public transport is likely.

Persistent, and at times heavy, rain will hit eastern parts of England this evening and last into Sunday, the Met Office said. It is expected to clear in East Anglia by dawn on Sunday, and in northeast England by early afternoon.

Rain showers in the southwest will also begin on Saturday evening and continue overnight.

Flooding is likely as a lot of ground is still waterlogged after recent bouts of wet weather and snow. A total of 76 flood warnings, and 275 lower level flood alerts, are currently in place for England.

Dozens of schools in northern England and north Wales closed earlier this week as snow covered parts of the UK.

Snow settled particularly quickly in Derbyshire, Yorkshire – parts of which are also covered by today’s weather warnings – and Wrexham.

This past five months have seen 10 named storms hit the UK and the latest – Storm Jocelyn – left some train operators cancelling all services in the final week of January.

Storm Jocelyn arrived just one day after Storm Isha brought winds of up to 100mph.

Two people died as Isha battered the country. An 84-year-old man died after the car he was travelling in crashed into a fallen tree in Grangemouth, Scotland.

In Limavady, Co Londonderry, a man in his 60s died after a crash involving two vans and another fallen tree.

UK weather: Yellow warnings issued for Northern Ireland, Wales, southwest England and parts of Scotland | UK News

Swathes of the UK are set for a wild and windy night as the Met Office issued warnings for much of the west of the country on Monday night.

Rain and strong winds are forecast across parts of Northern Ireland, Wales and southwest England between 6pm and midnight.

Travel disruption is expected as the Met Office predicts a “short period of very strong winds” with gusts of 50-60 mph, perhaps hitting as high as 70mph in coastal areas.

It added that a “short period of very heavy rain and squally winds” is “likely to cause some disruption, with some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport considered likely”.

Train and bus services will also “probably” be affected with journey times taking longer, thanks to spray and temporary flooding on roads.

Some short term loss of power and other services is also possible with a chance of hail and lightning in a few places.

The Environment Agency issued five flood warnings on Monday for Alfriston, Barcombe Mills and Hellingly and Horsebridge, in East Sussex and for Mock Bridge, near Shermanbury, West Sussex, on the River Adur.

It warns Whitwell, Wroxall, Langbridge and Alverstone on the river Eastern Yar in the Isle of Wight are at risk of flooding.

A second yellow warning for rain was issued from 3pm until midnight for southwest Scotland, Lothian Borders and Strathclyde.

The areas expected to be affected are Dumfries and Galloway, Scottish Borders, East Ayrshire, South Ayrshire and South Lanarkshire.

Alexander Burkill, senior operational meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “Two warnings have been issued, one for rain across parts of southwest Scotland due to totals building up later today.

“The second warning covers southwest England, much of Wales and parts of Northern Ireland.

“This is due to a squally band of rain that will bring very strong winds and intense rainfall.

“Rates of 20mm in an hour are possible with gusts of 50 to 60mph, perhaps 70mph in exposed spots.

“The band should move through fairly quickly but some impacts are still likely during the first part of the night due to the intense rain and winds.”

The bad weather is expected to ease overnight with no warning so far issued for the rest of the week.
