More flood misery as heavy rain warnings issued!

Its been a regular theme this month and the next 48-72 hours will be no exception.

The UK Met Office have issued warnings for further rainfall Today, Thursday and Friday.

The warning for today is for the South West of England & Southern parts of Wales where this is also a mention of Snow over some of the higher routes.

“Heavy rain will move in from the west through Wednesday afternoon and evening, becoming persistent in places during the evening. 20 to 30 mm may fall within 3-4 hours in a few locations. Rain may also turn to snow over the higher routes in south Wales towards midnight, perhaps with a few cm accumulating.”

For Thursday the Met Office warnings extend into two separate areas.

Firstly the South East parts of Wales and then into Central Southern England, Down to the South Coast and into the South East…

“Periods of rain are expected to become widespread, persistent and locally heavy across parts of England and Wales through Thursday. Rainfall totals of 15-25 mm are likely widely with the potential for some spots to see spots potentially seeing totals of 40-60 mm. These higher totals look most likely over parts of Bristol, Bath and Northeast Somerset, Wiltshire and into South Gloucestershire. Rainfall will ease from the west during Thursday afternoon and evening. Over western areas, some hill snow is possible, especially parts of south Wales, leading to local accumulations of a few cm.”

And for the area further North which covers the North East Midlands over to the Wash, North towards Hull and across to Sheffield…

“A period of heavy and persistent rain is likely on Thursday. 10-20 mm is likely fairly widely within the warning area and a few places may receive 35-45 mm which may lead to further flooding and disruption. The rain is expected to ease and clear to the north later on Thursday night.”
