UK Weather: Hurricane Humberto To Send Britain A Month Of Rain In Two Days
The downpour is “loosely” linked to Hurricane Humberto, which hit the edge of Bermuda and is travelling across the Atlantic towards Britain.
It was a category three storm at its peak on Wednesday and Thursday.
The Met Office has issued the yellow weather warning for rain for Tuesday, for an area which stretches from London and the South East to the South West, southern Wales and Herefordshire.
It is set to last from midnight until 3pm on Tuesday.After plenty of sunshine this week, it's all change into the week ahead...☀️☀️☀️➡️➡️➡️🌦️🌧️⛈️Here are the details 👇 pic.twitter.com/JY1rMDELGr— Met Office (@metoffice) September 22, 2019Met Office meterologist Luke Miall said: “We could see 20mm to 40 mm of rain within nine hours, and possibly the worst case scenario is of 70mm in some spots.”
Given that the average rainfall for September is 80-100mm, this means up to a month’s rain could fall over the next two days.
He said “there is the possibility of the odd rumble of thunder” in some areas on Tuesday, in contrast to recent dry days and sunshine.
Travellers, particularly on Tuesday morning, should brace themselves for disruption.
Bus and train journeys could take longer, there could be flooding on roads and homes and businesses could also be drenched in the downpour.
The weather warning says: “Spells of rain and heavy showers are expected to affect southern parts of England and Wales during Tuesday. The heaviest rainfall is likely to be during the morning.
“Around 20mm to 40mm of rain is expected to fall quite widely, with the potential for up to 70mm in a few locations.
“Much of the rain will fall in a relatively short space of time, typically less than six hours.
“The location of the very heaviest rainfall is currently still somewhat uncertain.”
Miall said there will still be a wet start to the week on Monday, but that any pockets of sunshine over the following days could see temperatures in the low 20s which is slightly warmer than normal for the time of year.
The seasonal norm is in the mid-to-high teens.Related... Eco-Anxiety Is On The Rise. Here's What You Need To Know UK Weather Forecast: Lovely Sun This Weekend Then It's Autumn Proper Is Climate Change Behind 2019's Record-Breaking Temperatures? We Asked The Experts
