UK weather: Met Office issues yellow warning with almost three inches of rain forecast | UK News

Nearly three inches of rain could fall over parts of England and Wales on Wednesday, forecasters have warned.

A yellow weather warning has been issued for parts of south-west England and Wales from early on Wednesday morning, through to midday.

Homes and businesses could be flooded, with some interruption to power supplies and other services, while bus and rail services may also be affected, leading to longer journey times.

Met Office meteorologist Greg Dewhurst said: “We could see quite widely across western parts of the UK 10 to 20mm (0.4 to 0.8in) of rain.

“But over those higher ground spots of parts of Wales, south-west England in particular, we could see 40 to 50mm (1.5 to 1.96in) and then locally 60 or 70mm (2.36 to 2.75in) of rain.”

He said the heavy rainfall could cause some flooding.

“This falling on the back of what has been a wet winter, wet month… we could see some flooding develop as we move through tomorrow morning,” he said.

The afternoon will bring respite from the rain, with sunny spells in parts of the country.

“It becomes much brighter into the afternoon through Wednesday with sunny spells,” he said.

“It takes time to clear across some central southern parts of the UK so it might stay cloudy here and then some parts of southern England may continue to see rain through the day.”

Strong winds could also bring gales around coastal areas.

Temperatures across the country will generally range between 12C to 14C, he added.

The Met Office said: “An area of persistent and occasionally heavy rain is expected to move from west to east across the warning area during Saturday and Sunday, falling on already saturated ground.

“Rain will clear western areas early Sunday, whilst rate of clearance from east and southeast England is open to some uncertainty, but all areas should become dry by evening.”

The Environment Agency, which covers England said: “Land, roads and some properties will flood and there will be travel disruption.”

Natural Resources Wales said: “Local flooding from surface water is probable, and local flooding from rivers is also possible, on Saturday and Sunday across Wales.

“Land, roads and some properties could flood and there could be travel disruption.”

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.

Temperatures across the UK have been fluctuating with a low of -13.8C (7.2F) being recorded in the Scottish Highlands in the early hours of Thursday, while a high of 13.6C (56.5) was recorded in Exeter later on the same day.

Met Office meteorologist Dan Stroud said: “We’ve still got rain and many have snow making its way northwards, we have got further weather warnings in force.

“Temperatures are recovering a little, across the far South it’s generally mild.

“We’ve got a second band of cloud and rain moving northwards, it makes for challenging driving conditions.

“We’ve had the worst of it but it’s still not completely clear. Where we have falling snow we see there is a risk of a few icy patches on roads.”

He added that as the focus “is probably starting to shift more towards ice, people should still be cautious”.

UK weather: Snow on the way with yellow warning for large parts of England and Wales | UK News

A yellow weather warning for snow has been issued for large parts of England and Wales.

The Met Office said snowfall could bring some disruption on Thursday and into Friday morning.

It warned there was a chance of travel delays on roads, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel.

There was also a chance some rural communities could become cut off, it said.

“A band of rain, sleet, and increasingly snow, will push north on Thursday bringing up to 2cm snow at lower levels, 2-5cm on ground above 200m, and perhaps as much as 10-20cm above 400m,” the Met Office said.

“The snow will ease later in the day, and may turn back to rain or drizzle, especially in the south and east of the area.”

It said there was some uncertainty about the northern limit of the snow and said details may change in the coming days.

The warning will be in effect for 24 hours from 3am on Thursday.

It comes after a yellow weather warning remains in place for Scotland until 9pm on Monday night, with up to 170mm (6.7in) of rain possible.

The Met Office said there is a “small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded”, which may result in damage to buildings.

The warning covers most of the Scottish Highlands but reaches as far south as the outskirts of Glasgow.

There is also a yellow warning for ice covering northern Scotland from midnight on Tuesday until 9am.

UK weather: Yellow warning issued for Scotland with up to 170mm of rain possible | UK News

A yellow weather warning is in place for rain in Scotland until 9pm on Monday night, with up to 170mm (6.7in) of rain possible.

The Met Office said in its warning there is a “small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded”, which may result in damage to buildings.

Between 40 to 80mm (1.6-2.4in) of rain is expected, with 120 to 170mm (4.7-6.7in) possible overnight in the wettest areas, which may include parts of Argyll, Lochaber and Wester Ross. Strong winds are also forecast.

Where flooding occurs it could also lead to delays or cancellations on train or bus services, as well as difficult driving conditions, the Met Office warned.

The warning covers most of the Scottish Highlands but reaches as far south as the outskirts of Glasgow.

As of 9.30pm on Sunday, there were 10 flood alerts and six flood warnings across Scotland.

Heavy rain and wintry conditions are also due later in the week across the whole of the UK.

“It turns colder across northern areas with showers, which will turn wintry at times especially over higher ground but potentially to lower levels too as the week progresses,” the Met Office said in a statement.

“There is a chance of wintry conditions developing more widely through the second half of next week as rain pushes up from the south for a time, but there is still uncertainty about the details of this.”

Scotland has had to endure repeatedly wet conditions that have resulted in flooding this winter, including after Storm Babet in October when four hundred properties across Angus had to be gutted.

Achfary in northwest Scotland recently recorded a new provisional maximum temperature record of 19.9C for January.

UK storm set to batter ‘everybody’ in ‘rare’ weather cycle – as forecasters warn of flying debris | UK News

A “very widespread” storm is forecast to hit Britain with strong winds and heavy rain as multiple amber warnings come into force, the Met Office has said.

Storm Isha, the ninth storm since September, is expected to bring winds of up to 80mph, potentially causing power cuts and increased congestion as roads and bridges are likely to be shut, while rail and bus services could face delays and cancellations.

The Met Office has issued amber weather warnings for wind for northern and western England, Wales, Northern Ireland and parts of Scotland from Sunday evening into Monday.

Another warning comes into force across parts of Sussex and Kent from Monday morning.

Forecasters have also warned of large waves and flying debris being blown inland in coastal areas, posing a potential risk to life and damage to buildings.

Yellow warnings for rain and wind are in place for the rest of the country over the next two days, and eight flood warnings are already in place across England.

The heaviest rain is expected today, with 30mm to 50mm in many places and 80mm to 100mm in hillier areas.

Met Office forecaster Ellie Glaisyer said: “The main thing about this storm is it is very widespread across the whole of the UK.

“Quite often we see storms affecting the northwest or the southern half of the UK, whereas this one, later on Sunday and into Monday, the whole of the UK is covered by a warning, which is relatively rare.

“In that nature it’s a very widespread storm and it’s going to be affecting everybody. Heavy rain will affect everybody, those strong winds will affect everybody.

“That’s the main difference to previous storms we have seen.”

Ireland’s Met Eireann also has amber wind warnings in place today and on Monday, with a status red storm warning covering coastal areas in the north of the country.

“A status red severe weather warning is rarely issued but when it is, people in the areas expected to be affected should take action to protect themselves and/or their properties,” the forecaster says on its website.

High winds forced the Severn Bridge to close in both directions for a time overnight, but it has now reopened.

East Midlands Railway said it expected “significant disruption” on Sunday and Monday, while Police Scotland advised people to avoid unnecessary travel.

Ms Glaisyer said: “Anybody driving on Sunday evening and through Monday should be wary of water on the roads, lots of spray, perhaps some branches and trees may have fallen over causing roads to be blocked.

“There’s some large waves as well that could cause disruption to ferry services and the strong winds could cause some delays to trains and plane travel.”

Warmer weather will accompany the adverse conditions after a week of snow and sub-zero temperatures, with highs of 13C possible today.

However, Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said the strong winds, rain and clouds could overshadow the milder weather so it might not “feel quite so warm”.

Mr Burkill added: “Temperatures will be on the mild side, lifting as we go through this weekend and staying mild through much of next week.

“There may be some chillier spells but I think that any frost is likely to be isolated if we see any at all.”

From Tuesday afternoon until midday on Wednesday, a yellow wind warning will be in place covering Northern Ireland, north Wales, northern England and much of Scotland.

UK weather: ‘Severe’ alert on the roads as freezing temperatures and snow forecast | UK News

Drivers could end up stranded or delayed this week as freezing temperatures hit the UK – with National Highways issuing a “severe weather alert” for snow.

The travel warning covers northwest England on Tuesday and coincides with four days of Met Office warnings for snow and ice.

Temperatures 5-6C lower than normal are forecast, with sunshine for many today but nearly all of the UK struggling to get more than a couple of degrees above zero.

Monday’s snow and ice warning covers the whole of Northern Ireland and northern Scotland.

On Tuesday, the area expands to cover a large swathe of northern England, the whole of Scotland, and North Wales.

National Highways, which manages motorways and major roads, is urging drivers to “check ahead and plan for disruption” as “widespread snow” is expected in the North West.

It warns of potential delays and stranded vehicles – with 5-10cm possible on top of the A66 and M62 – and other parts getting between 1cm and 5cm.

Some rural communities could be cut off and rail services may also be delayed or cancelled, it adds.

“We would recommend people stick to the main roads and avoid country lanes where possible,” says Met Office meteorologist Liam Eslick.

“These are the places that aren’t going to see any gritting or any road clearances for the next couple of days.

“So we recommend people take their time, make sure they have time to do their cars in the mornings, and go steady.”

Mr Eslick says the snow is down to a strong northerly wind bringing in an Arctic airmass.

A Met Office snow warning remains in force on Wednesday and Thursday, over a slightly smaller area but still covering millions in places such as Greater Manchester, Liverpool and Northern Ireland.

As well as possible road and rail problems, the forecaster says there could be power cuts in some places.

This week’s warnings follow snow in the South East last week, with places such as Kent getting several centimetres, and flooding from Storm Henk persisting in many other areas.

UK weather: Yellow warnings issued for snow and ice as travel disruption expected | UK News

The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for snow and ice at the weekend and into next week.

The alerts, which warn some travel disruption is likely, cover northern parts of Scotland on Sunday and Monday.

Another warning has been issued for the whole of Northern Ireland on Monday.

The Met Office said some roads and railways are likely to be affected, with some icy patches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

It warned there may also be some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.

Check the five-day forecast where you are

The warnings for Scotland are active for the whole of Sunday and Monday, while the alert for Northern Ireland is active from 3am until midnight on Monday.

The warning covering Scotland on Monday cautions there will be a small chance of power cuts and warns other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected.

It also says there is a slight chance snow-covered roads would lead to stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel.

The Met Office said a northerly airflow will bring cold arctic air to the UK from Sunday and into next week, causing snow showers to focus across northern areas of Scotland and Northern Ireland.

There is a chance of disruptive snow for some areas as milder Atlantic air pushes in from the southwest over the next week.

Why forecasting snow in the UK is a big challenge

“While the initial snow risk from Sunday onwards is looking most likely to be coastal areas in the north of the UK, including North Sea and Irish Sea coasts, there’s an ongoing likelihood of some disruptive snow through the middle to latter part of next week,” Met Office deputy chief meteorologist David Hayter said.

“What we’re keeping an eye on for this disruptive snow is where exactly this milder air from the southwest bumps into the cold air that will be in place over the UK. It’s where these airmasses meet that there’s a likelihood of some substantial snow for some places.

“At the moment, models are showing us a variety of options for exactly when and how this situation plays out and it’s something we’ll be able to add more details to in the coming days.”
