UK weather: Heatwave to reach dramatic climax today – with yellow warnings for thunderstorms in place | UK News

The heatwave will reach a dramatic climax on Sunday – with a yellow warning for thunderstorms in place across large parts of the UK.

Temperatures are set to head above 30C (86F) once again in parts of southern England – with much cooler conditions expected as a new week begins.

But further north, the Met Office is warning that thunderstorms could bring disruption, and a risk of sudden flooding in some areas.

UK heatwave soon to end?

A yellow warning is in force from 2pm to 11.59pm – covering much of northern England and Northern Ireland, alongside parts of Scotland and Wales.

“Unlucky locations” could see up to 70mm of intense rainfall in the space of a few hours – with “additional hazards” of frequent lightning and large hail.

Saturday was provisionally the hottest day of the year so far – with highs of 33.2C (92F) recorded at London’s Kew Bridge.

And Sunday is set to prolong the record for the longest consecutive stretch of September days above 30C, with temperatures above this threshold for the seventh day in a row.

Britons are being urged to make the most of the warmer weather, as conditions are set to become more typical for this time of year.

Showers and longer spells of rain will begin to sweep in on Monday – and it’s shaping up to be rather unsettled in the South on Tuesday.

Sky’s weather producer Chris England said: “It will be cooler and fresher for many, still quite muggy in the South East, although not as hot as recently.”

UK weather: Yellow warnings issued as heavy rain could cause travel disruption amid train strike | UK News

Heavy rain could cause travel chaos across the weekend as it coincides with a strike by train drivers on Saturday.

The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for southern England and southern Wales and Saturday and Sunday. Parts of Scotland are under a yellow weather warning on Saturday.

It said downpours would likely cause flooding on roads and make journey times longer, with flooding of homes and businesses also possible.

Four flood warnings and 56 flood alerts have been issued in England.

The weather warnings on Saturday coincide with train drivers from 11 companies belonging to the Aslef union striking in a long-running dispute over pay.

Passengers have been urged to plan ahead and check before they travel throughout the whole weekend.

Trains that are running will start later on Saturday morning and finish much earlier than usual, with services typically running between 7.30am and 6.30pm on the day of the strike.

Rain, which is expected to be heavy at times, is set to hit parts of south Wales and southwest England between 2pm on Saturday and 3am on Sunday.

In Wales Cardiff, Swansea and Carmarthen are among the areas that could be affected, while in England Plymouth, Southampton and St Austell could be affected.

The Met Office said: “Rain is expected to develop across south Wales and south-west England during Saturday afternoon, moving slowly east to clear most areas early on Sunday morning.

“Although the most persistent rain is expected over hills, periods of heavy rain are expected almost anywhere. 15 to 25 mm is expected quite widely, with some places seeing 40 to 60 mm of rain, particularly over hills in south Wales and south-west England.

“Strong winds will accompany the rain, with gusts of 45 to 55 mph over hills and around coasts.”

Parts of Scotland, including Perth and Sterling, could also get heavy rain from noon to midnight on Saturday.

The Met Office warned “heavy rain may lead to some flooding and disruption to travel” during this period.

“Rain will turn persistent and heavy at times across the warning area through Saturday afternoon and evening,” it added.

“Accumulations of 20 to 30 mm are expected with 45 mm possible on high ground.

“Given existing saturated ground there is a risk of some localised flooding.”

From Sunday to Tuesday, the Met Office weather outlook states: “Rain across England and Wales will slowly clear Sunday, with blustery showers following to the north.

“Showers in the north die out Monday, with many areas dry Tuesday.

“Fog later.”

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.

England and Wales braced for flooding and thunderstorms after yellow weather warning | UK News

A yellow weather warning has been put in place as England and Wales brace for flooding, heavy rain and thunder.

The thunderstorm warning, covering much of England and parts of Wales, is in place from 4am on Sunday until 5am on Monday.

Forecasters are warning that the wet weather could lead to flooding, leaving businesses and homes at risk of damage.

Check the weather where you are

A warning on the Met Office’s website says: “There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds.”

It added that there could be disruptions to travel including road closures and train cancellations.

Met Office Meteorologist Rebecca Hudson said that the risk is mostly confined to Central and southern England.

She said the weather warning is almost in a “triangular shape”, from East Yorkshire roughly down to the Cardiff area, East Devon, to London as well, and East Anglia.

Ms Hudson said there will be some “heavier showers” over Sunday night, before drying out on Monday – with some sunny spells even on the cards.

“The heavier band moves through tomorrow morning and then weakens out into the afternoon but then there are some further heavy showers tomorrow night,” she said.

“And then as we go in overnight, things will gradually dry out into Monday morning.

“There will be some heavier showers overnight on Sunday into Monday, but these will gradually weaken and then Monday will be a lot drier with some sunny spells around as well,” she added.

Sharing advice from the RAC and National Highways, the Met Office is advising drivers to slow down in thunderstorms and find alternative routes if roads are flooded.
