Monsoon Monday for parts of the UK with flooding and Gale force winds!

The UK Met Office have issued a ‘Yellow Warning’ as a spell of severe weather is expected throughout Monday.

Current projections show as much as 100mm of rain falling coupled with wind speeds that could reach 60MPH!

The risk of flooding is very high with a storm surge likely along the East coast.

The Met Office warning reads as follows…

‘Heavy rain is likely to affect southeastern parts of England through Monday, peaking during the morning period. Accumulations of 25-35 mm seem likely widely, with 60-80 mm possible in places, this perhaps most likely for parts of Norfolk and the North Downs; the westward extent of these higher totals remains less certain. Strong winds are also likely with gusts of 40-45 mph likely inland, particularly during Monday morning, and possible gusts to 50-55 mph along exposed coasts and over hills. Coming from an unusual (northerly) direction may increase the likelihood of wind-related impacts. Note that these winds will also lead to large waves, and spray and overtopping around some coasts. It may also be cold enough for a little sleet or wet snow on high ground but this is unlikely to settle.’
