UK alerted for bad weather in the next 24 hours

Within the next 24 hours, the UK must brace itself for winds of up to 60mph that will hit the north of England and south of Scotland, as weather forecasters predict 80mm of rain before Monday evening in other areas as well.

The Environmental Agency has issued 60 flood alerts, mainly in south-west England, and six alerts for the South West. Northern Ireland is predicted to have major wind lash. The Met Office has alerted the following areas to be prepared for severe weather conditions that are likely to follow in the next 24 hours.

London, south-east, south-west, north-east and north-west England, Northern Ireland, Wales, central Scotland, south-west Scotland, Lothian and Borders, Tayside and Fife, the West Midlands and Yorkshire and the Humber, have all been warned of the worse weather conditions.

The adverse conditions are causing major disruptions to services between London Paddington and Devon and Cornwall. Major disruption are also seen in local services in Devon and Cornwall, while flooding at Whimple near Exeter is blocking the Exeter to London Waterloo line, thereby, suspending the services operated by South West Trains.

The Met Office announced that the average monthly rain fall differed across the UK but in London the September average was 49mm, Yorkshire 74mm, for Plymouth it was 78mm, Ayrshire recorded 131mm, Northumberland 74mm and Londonderry 94mm.

Travelling disturbances are likely on Monday, as there will be “a lot of debris around due to severe gale force winds as well as surface water on the roads”, the Met Office warned.

A drastic change in the weather compared to what the country experienced during the first part of September will be seen, said the Met Office.
