Travel disruption and localised flooding will strike Britain today, with some regions seeing as much as 40mm rainfall in just the space of a few hours.
Britain bathed in warm temperatures of 26C yesterday but today the Met Office has slapped in two yellow warnings for heavy rain across western England, all of Wales and Northern Ireland.
They started at 6pm yesterday and will last all the way through to around 9pm tonight – a full 27 hours of heavy rainfall.
Northern Ireland will be the worse off, with heavy showers, thunderstorms and strong gusty winds in the south and west.
The Met office say flooding of home and businesses is ‘likely’ and spray and flooding will make journey times longer.
It’s also going to be colder for the rest of us as the remnants Hurricane Humberto hits, with temperatures set to drop to below 20C mark today.
It will dry up by Monday although there will be still be rain in northern Scotland and the far south-west part of England.
Brits are expected to see cloudy with showers or longer spells of rain with breezy winds next week – as we bid goodbye to the Indian Summer/
The Met Office said last night: “Heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected on Saturday evening, perhaps merging into longer spells of rain on Sunday.
“While many places are likely to stay dry, there is a risk of 30-40mm in a few hours which may lead to localised flooding and travel disruption.
A spokesman for The Weather Company told The Sun: “Particularly wet and windy weather is expected to start next week as the remnants of Hurricane Humberto are expected to pass to the north-west of Britain.”
Some northern and eastern areas may stay bright and warm but heavy rain or showers will affect most parts. Sunnier interludes are likely between the showers across southwestern areas later.
Rain clearing Scotland overnight, with scattered showers across western areas soon dying out. Elsewhere, dry with some clear spells developing.
A dry and bright start for most of the UK. Wind and rain will spread northeast during the day, reaching southwest Scotland, northern England and Lincolnshire by evening.
Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:
Unsettled with spells of rain and showers, and limited brighter or sunny periods. Showers especially heavy on Tuesday across England and Wales. Often windy, especially along coasts, temperatures around normal.
