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.

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.

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 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.

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.”

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.
