UK storm warning: Three areas on flood alert as heavy rain to BATTER Britain in hours

2 mins read

Flooding could be possible in Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire today after a deluge of heavy rain. The Environment agency has put out three flood alerts for Lower Dove Brooks in Staffordshire, River Maun in Nottinghamshire and the River Plym and Tory Brook.

A low pressure front from the Atlantic made landfall overnight, bringing thunder and rain to parts of the country.

A previous Met Office yellow warning was in place until 4am this morning across the southwest of England, the western coast of Wales and Northern Ireland.

The wet and stormy conditions are expected to die down over this afternoon.

The Met Office has predicted the conditions will clear up for many this morning, but showers will be back throughout the afternoon and evening for some southern and central parts of the UK.

This week is shaping up to be more unsettled than recent weather.

Ian Simpson from Netweather said: “In contrast to the summer just gone, this upcoming week is set to be unsettled with low pressure dominating. 

“It will remain generally warmer than average, because the low pressure will be centred to the west and south-west of Britain, bringing southerly winds, although the warmth will often be most pronounced by night, rather than by day.

“Towards the end of the coming week (around Thursday and Friday), the low may start to head eastwards through the country, resulting in temperatures falling close to the seasonal average, but this is a long way off.”
