UK Weather: Flood Warnings Issued As More Heavy Rain Expected
Forecasters warn that up to 70mm of rain could fall over the highest parts of the country – on top of land that is already saturated.
The Environment Agency currently has 28 localised flood warnings in place for England in counties including Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Yorkshire, Hampshire, Sussex and Lincolnshire.
There are two warnings in place in Monmouthshire in Wales plus 175 alerts for possible flooding across the country.
Those concerned about the risk to their area are urged to check the Environment Agency website for more information.
Alex Burkill, a meteorologist with the Met Office, said: “Today we’ve got the heaviest rain across northern England and it’s pushing its way eastward.
“In the rest of England and Wales there are showery outbreaks but we’ve probably seen the worst of the rain for these parts.
“We could see a further 30mm to 40mm over the highest ground in northern England as we go through the rest of the day.
“We’ve already seen some fairly significant rainfall and there will be further persistent rain through northern and central England and further showery outbreaks in Wales.” Sennybridge in Brecknockshire saw the highest rainfall, with 53.8mm falling in the last 24 hours, followed by Footholm Flume in Lancashire at 48.8mm.
Burkill said: “Monday is going to start off pretty fine for most places, however a system is going to come in through the day reaching south-west England and Wales by 10am tomorrow morning and spreading eastwards as we go through the day.
“By evening rush hour, much of England and Wales will be pretty wet.”
Another 70mm could fall over the highest areas, Burkill said, which would be falling onto already saturated ground.
“Monday will be another very wet one for England and Wales but for Scotland and Northern Ireland, they are going to have another fairly dry day, just a few showers and some bright spells.”
He said parts of England and Wales could see highs of 19C (66.2F) or 20C (68F), a little above average for the time of year, but that this would be masked by the wind and the rain.
“It’s not going to feel pleasant by any means,” he said.
Police forces in England and Wales have warned drivers to take care on slippery and potentially treacherous roads, and rail passengers are advised to check their route for delays before travelling.
Northern Rail asked cycling fans turning out for the final day of the UCI Road World Championships in North Yorkshire to rethink their travel plans after the route had to be changed to avoid flooding.
The fanzone in Harrogate had to be closed and the race is now set to finish earlier.
Steve Hopkinson, regional director at Northern, said: “We have extra services and additional carriages this afternoon to take people from Harrogate after the race, but trains will be extremely busy and customers may want to stagger their journeys to catch a later, less-busy service.
“We will have a queuing system in place at the station to get people onto our trains as efficiently as possible – and we need customers to be patient as we, and colleagues from other operators, work to get fans where they need to be.”
The rainfall has already led to the cancellation of the inaugural Regatta London race, which was due to take place on the River Thames on Sunday.
Organisers said they were unable to safely run the event due to “stormy weather” affecting the river’s water quality.OTHER NEWS Three Brothers Charged With Murder After Fatal West London Stabbing Murder Investigation Launched After Woman Stabbed To Death In North London Home Elon Musk Unveils Spacecraft He Claims Can Make A Return Trip To Mars
