Yellow Weather Warnings For Rain And Wind Acoss UK – With Travel Disruption Expected

  • by

A yellow weather warning is in place in the majority of England and Wales until Tuesday evening as spells of rain are expected to affect travel.

The Met Office has said parts of southwest and southern England, south Wales and possibly the Midlands will experience the most rain on Monday evening and overnight.

The areas likely to get the most drenched on Tuesday aren’t as clear, the Met Office added, but it’s more likely across parts of Wales, the Midlands, and towards eastern England and Yorkshire.

The worst of the rain should clear southwestern areas of England and south Wales by around midday on Tuesday, it said, but could last into the evening across the northeast of the warning area.

The yellow rain warning is in place until 9pm on Tuesday.

“Over the warning period, 15 to 30mm rain is likely to fall fairly widely, with a few places seeing 35 to 50mm,” the Met Office said.

It also warns of some homes and businesses being at risk of flooding.

Met Office meteorologist Jonathan Vautrey said: “At the moment it does look like a lot of that rain will push across the vast majority of England and Wales, turning widely wet once again throughout Tuesday.

“Parts of southeastern, eastern Scotland should hold on to some slightly brighter periods for the bank holiday but it is going to be very wet and windy once again for the Northern Isles, Orkney and Shetland.”

The Met Office said that “very windy conditions are likely to quickly develop” over southwest England and southern Wales on Tuesday morning and then spread eastwards across southern and some central parts of England.

It added: “In coastal areas winds are likely to gust towards 60mph at times, with a lower likelihood of 70mph gusts.

“Inland gusts of 40 to 50mph are likely but with a smaller chance of 55 to 60mph gusts, although the extent of such gusts carries low confidence at present.”

The Met Office said the spell of very windy weather is likely to cause some travel disruption in the following areas:
