UK LIVE weather forecast – Brits to BE WATCHED by heavy rain from ex-Storm Alex as Met Office issues SEVERE warning

EX-TROPICAL storm Alex will bring strong winds and thunderstorms while June continues to have a wet and miserable start.

Heavy rain and gales are on their way to the north of Britain, while the south appears to be basking in 23C highs from former Tropical Storm Alex.

The Met Office also issued a “unsettled” weather warning this week as storm warnings have already been put in place.

Rebekah Sherwin, the Met Office’s deputy chief meteorologist, said: “By the time the system that was Tropical Storm Alex approaches the UK coast, it will have transitioned into a mature Atlantic low.

“Although no longer a named storm, it will bring some unusually strong winds across the northern half of the UK – particularly on Friday and Saturday in the north-west.

“The trail of the low pressure system currently appears to be brushing the far north west of Britain on Friday and Saturday and although details are still being worked out, winds are likely to reach around 45mph for many areas in northern Britain, with a chance of Gusts in excess of 85 km/h in some exposed northwestern island and coastal areas.

The news comes as air allergen expert Max Wiseberg told the Daily Star: “With this fine weather, thunderstorms are also forecast which can cause problems for hay fever sufferers.

“Very high pollen counts are forecast in many parts of England from Thursday, which will wreak havoc on millions of hay fever sufferers in the UK.

“Forecast thunderstorms will not calm down as they may instead cause a phenomenon known as ‘thunder fever.'”

  • The Brits are looking forward to a cool and windy weekend

    The Met Office says Brits are in for another mixed weekend.

    Areas to the south will be dry with sunny spells while the north will see strong winds and some rain.

    “Generally dry with light spells and light showers. However, the North West is windy with risk of coastal storms and frequent/heavy showers,” the Met Office said.

    “Temperatures near normal but cool in the Northwest.”

  • What can the Brits expect from Storm Alex?

    The Met Office has outlined what kind of weather Brits can expect from Storm Alex when it hits our shores.

    Rebekah Sherwin, the Met Office’s deputy chief meteorologist, said: “By the time the system that was Tropical Storm Alex approaches the UK coast, it will have transitioned into a mature Atlantic low.

    “Although no longer a named storm, it will bring some unusually strong winds across the northern half of the UK – particularly on Friday and Saturday in the north-west.

    “The trail of the low pressure system currently appears to be brushing the far north west of Britain on Friday and Saturday and although details are still being worked out, winds are likely to reach around 45mph for many areas in northern Britain, with a chance of Gusts in excess of 85 km/h in some exposed northwestern island and coastal areas.

  • Pollen levels continue to rise across the UK

    As we move further into peak grass pollen season, pollen levels are rising again.

    According to the BBC, pollen levels on Wednesday and Thursday will reach their highest level in some time.

    Allergy sufferers should make sure they are not overly affected.

  • In pictures: Brits avoid the rain on sunny beach trip

    Although thunder, rain and hail are hitting the UK today, the Brits have packed the nation’s beaches and made the most of the sunny spells.

    This comes with the Met Office having issued a yellow weather warning in some parts of the country.

    The weekend will continue the trend of unstable weather with clouds, sun and rain.

  • “Lightning and hail” on the way north

    In a recent press release, the Met Office laid out what weather Brits can expect for the rest of the day and it’s not pretty to read.

    That comes after the organization issued a yellow weather warning for parts of the north.

    Steve Willington, the Met Office’s chief meteorologist, said: “Slow thunderstorm showers are the driving force behind the issued weather warning.

    “There is a possibility of accompanying lightning and hail and there could be some difficult driving conditions with a low probability of local flooding from surface water due to the amount of rain in a relatively short period of time.

    “Some locations within the warning range will miss the heaviest showers, but isolated spots could see more than 30mm of rain in just a few hours.”
