Good evening. Much like the local forecast, the national picture is a
stormy one in the next 24 hours. The Met Office have issued an amber
weather warning for strong winds across southern counties. Wilts up
to Surrey in particular. There will be some transport disruption, no
doubt, and it could go beyond that, so if you're travelling across the
country there could be transport and power disruption and with more rain
in the forecast, further flooding where areas have flooded and some
very strong winds and high seas. Southern coastal counties of England
and Wales have been troubled, but Dorset sees three severe flood
warnings, and more details on them on our own website. Still some very
strong winds and heavy rain although it is set to ease off in the next
hour. The strongest winds will be on the back edge of this band of more
persistent rain which extends across much of England, Northern Ireland
and increasingly so into Scotland, producing heavy snow across the
Grampians. Gales inland, 50 or 60 mph, easing as the first batch of
rain pushes through, but then the next major batch works through into
tomorrow morning and this will start to pep up the rain and also bring
strong winds. It is all linked into the stormy low-pressure. Strongest
winds around the Channel coast. Heavy rain to start your morning
rush hour in Wales, the south-west, and after early brightness.
Widespread gales across the country, the winds around the coast may be up
to 80 mph and they will strengthen in the west later. Temperatures
fairly academic. One or two bright spells, but plenty of rain through
the day, and the driest spot will be the north-west of Scotland. It stays
windy tomorrow evening, so problems as we ended the day tomorrow. The
winds eased down as we go through Wednesday into Thursday. Persistent
rain in Orkney and Shetland but the rain turning less showery. Drier and
brighter weather, lighter winds, but there is more rain in the south
coast by the end of the day, and that is on top of already saturated
ground, as much as an inch, Thursday night into brightly as the
low-pressure pushes through and will only enhance the flooding risk
further. It does clear with bright conditions when the day, but more
stormy weather in the weekend. More details on the website.
Aren't police meant to keep us safe? Isn't that what they do?!
