UK Weather: Hurricane Humberto Downpours To Dump A Month Of Rain On The UK Before Midnight
As of 9am, the Environment Agency had issued two flood warnings for south-west England and 27 flood alerts across the rest of the country.
Met Office forecaster Luke Miall said 48mm of rain had fallen in parts of Hampshire over just six hours, while mid-Dorset experienced 36.4mm.
England and Wales can expect 30-50mm of rain on Tuesday, with up to 70mm in isolated spots by midnight, the Met Office said.
A yellow weather warning is in place.Heavy rain and thunderstorms affecting much of England and Wales, with flooding possible in a few places. Brighter and showery in southern, western and central areas later. Rain reaching parts of southern Scotland but much of northwestern Britain brighter. https://t.co/Hjw1otqXULpic.twitter.com/EKsDLZzdAu— Met Office (@metoffice) September 24, 2019Heavy #rain will lead to some difficult travelling conditions through Tuesday morning.

“I would expect quite a lot of surface water flooding on the roads. That will cause some disruption to people travelling, so you can expect journey times to be delayed.”
The Travel Dorset Twitter account, run by Dorset Council, said there were reports of “deep flooding” in parts of Dorchester Tuesday morning.#TravelDorsetAlert: Dorchester - reports of flooding on High East Street. #dorsetweather— Travel Dorset (@TravelDorset) September 24, 2019Meanwhile, the Environment Agency has two flood warnings in place for the River Frome between Maiden Newton and Dorchester, in Dorset, south-west England.
It said flooding was “expected” along the river between 8am and 6pm Tuesday.
A further 27 flood alerts, where flooding is “possible”, have been issued for rivers in the South East, East Midlands and North West of England.
The downpour is being brought by a burst of low pressure travelling across the UK, along with warm and humid air linked to the remnants of Hurricane Humberto, which hit the Bermuda coastline last week.
The wet weather is due to move further north Tuesday afternoon. However, another band of rain is forecast to hit the South West of England and Wales, Miall said.
Tuesday’s weather warning is set to last until 11pm, and although the heavy rain is expected to clear by Wednesday, a low-pressure front is expected to remain for the rest of the week.
This will bring bright and breezy weather to the UK, along with some showers or prolonged spells of rain.
Temperatures could rise to the low 20s, which is slightly warmer than average for early autumn.
The norm for this time of year is in the mid-to-high teens.
Yellow weather warnings were also in place in some places during the weekend, with scattered thundery showers on Sunday afternoon.Related... Summer's Definitely Over As Hurricane Humberto Could Send Us A Month Of Rain In Two Days UK Weather Forecast: Lovely Sun This Weekend Then It's Autumn Proper
