UK weather forecast: Met Office warning for strong gales & rain this weekend

THE Met Office has released yellow weather warnings for strong 50mph winds and heavy rain this weekend.

The first warning is in place for parts of Cornwall and southwest Wales between 13:00 and 19:00 tomorrow, and so is expected that the conditions will cause disruption to travel and road.

The Met Office have said: “A spell of wet and windy weather with coastal gales and heavy rain will develop during Saturday afternoon.

“Gusts in coastal areas are likely to reach 50-55 mph and perhaps as high as 60 mph in the most exposed parts of Cornwall and southwest Wales.

“Inland, gusts will tend to peak at 45-50 mph away from hills and mountains. Wind will then ease a little during the evening.”

Meanwhile, Met Office has also predicted record temperatures amid ’28C heatwave’ in April.

Weather forecaster Jim Dale told the Express that the UK can expect hot weather to arrive “fairly early” this year.

He said he “wouldn’t be surprised to see 26C, 27C, 28C in the middle of April.”

  • Wet and Windy start to April

    Some uncertainty heading into this period, with higher pressure to start which is expected to recede southwards leading to lower pressure in the north.

    A predominantly southerly airflow is expected and is likely to lead to wet and windy weather interspersed with brighter and showery conditions.

    Temperatures are likely to remain rather mild for most, although short periods of colder conditions are still possible.

  • Next week’s weather will bring sun but will remain unsettled

    The Spring weather shows no signs of letting up with next week set to bring some showers and lots of sunshine.

    There’s be mainly dry weather, sunshine and a few rainy spells throughout the south.

    The majority of the week is expected to be warm.

  • Flood warning in place until tomorrow

    There is currently a flood warning in place for the North Sea coast at Bridlington from this morning until 1am Saturday.

    The Met Office warns: “Overtopping waves and spray are expected as a result of strong onshore winds on the coast at Bridlington South Pier between 08:30 on Friday 11/03/2022 and 01:00 on Saturday 12/03/2022.

    “Areas most at risk are low lying land and roads; this flood alert covers two consecutive high tides and the low tide in between.

    “Our incident response staff are closely monitoring the forecast. Please be careful along beaches, promenades, coastal footpaths and roads as large waves and sea spray could be dangerous.”

  • Next week’s temperatures expected to rise

    The outlook for the rest of the week is “unsettled”.

    Forecaster Tomasz Schafernaker told The Mirror: “The last couple of days the weather really has been quite good, beautiful sunny skies for some of us across eastern parts of the UK but things are probably going to turn now.”

    He added a weather front will bring rain, and on Saturday gusts of between 60 and 70mph could batter certain areas, such as the Isles of Scilly and Cornwall.

    Mr Schafenaker said: “Next week we are expecting the temperatures to rise even as high as 17C or 18C in south west parts of the UK.”

  • Wild weekend ahead

    BRITS should brace for a wild weekend with blistering gales and showers – before an 18C scorcher next week.

    Two yellow weather warnings are currently in place for Saturday and Sunday for wind.

    Saturday’s warning covers parts of the South West of England and South Wales, as well as Western England.

    And on Sunday, strong winds are forecast for South West Scotland and the East of Northern Ireland.

  • Reason behind heatwave in April

    Experts say La Niña in the tropical Pacific is influencing global average temperatures.

    Met Office scientist, Dr Nick Dunstone said: “Global temperature has been slightly suppressed during 2021 because of the cooling influence of La Niña in the tropical Pacific.

    “With another La Niña now underway, making this a so-called ‘double-dip’ La Niña, it is not surprising that we are forecasting another relatively cool year for global temperatures when compared with the run of years since 2015.

    “However, it is still likely that 2022 will be above 1.0C and hence continue the series of warmest years for global temperature since 1850.”

  • April heat

    The Met Office has predicted record temperatures amid ’28C heatwave’ in April.

    Weather forecaster Jim Dale told the Express that the UK can expect hot weather to arrive “fairly early” this year.

    He said he “wouldn’t be surprised to see 26C, 27C, 28C in the middle of April.”

  • UK weather outlook for Sunday and Monday

    On Sunday early rain will clear north-eastwards during the morning morning to reveal a mixture of bright spells and scattered showers, a few locally heavy and thundery.

    Monday will be mainly dry with cloud breaking to reveal sunny spells however showers and spells of rain will linger across Scotland.

  • Tomorrow’s weather (Saturday)

    A cloudy start with scattered showers which will merge into longer spells of rain and will be most frequent across Scotland and linger for much of the day.

    Cloud will clear from the south to reveal sunny spells across England and Wales however cloud and rain will push into the south-west later.

  • Tonight’s weather

    Rain will continue to push northwards and eastwards during the evening and will be locally heavy but will clear to reveal scattered showers, a few of these may be heavy and thundery.

    Overnight will then be largely dry but cloudy with a threat of showers, these most frequent in the north and west.

  • Odds on a record hot April in the UK

    Leading bookmaker Coral has cut the odds to 6-4 (from 3-1) on next month being a record hot April in the UK, as some reports suggest temperatures could rise to as high as 28C.

    “It looks like we are going to get one of the first heatwaves of the year in April. With temperatures likely to soar, we have slashed the odds on next month being a record hot April,” said Coral’s John Hill.

  • London to face strong winds

    Winds will be strong for much of the day with temperatures remaining cold throughout with maximum temperatures of13 °C.

    Cloudy with outbreaks of rain initially, these clearing as winds ease and clouds begin to break.

    Showers developing in the English Channel overnight, these moving north and perhaps turning heavy with minimum temperatures of 5 °C.

  • March 6/4 to be wettest EVER

    THIS MONTH is looking increasingly likely to go down as the wettest March on record, according to Ladbrokes.

    Having been a 2/1 shot last week, the bookies now make it just 6/4 for this month to play host to the wettest March EVER.

    Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “There’s every chance this month plays host to record-breaking rain with Brits soon set to be battered by strong winds and heavy showers.”

  • It’s set to be a warm Summer so here’s how to stay safe against UV

    As climate change begins to make more of an effect, it’s important to be aware of UV rays.

    Sunburn occurs when the skin is exposed to UV rays from the sun, but can also be from sunbeds.

    Extreme sunburn can be very serious and even mild sunburn may not heal properly leading to aged skin and eventually skin cancer.

    The Met Office advises sunscreen and avoiding excess exposure to UV rays.

  • What are the next storms called?

    The potential for more weather damage lingers ahead of the arrival of more named storms.

    Jim told the Express Storm Gladys and Storm Hermann won’t be too far behind their predecessors which consecutively battered Britain in one week.

    He said: “In terms of big events, as in Storm Gladys finally getting onto the stage and Storm Hermann to follow.”

    “The first half of march is sometimes on paper some of the snowiest stuff we’ve seen in any form of winter.

    “Somewhere in the early Spring, I’m pretty sure we’ll see Gladys and Hermann to follow.”

    A storm is given a name when it has the potential to cause an amber or red warning, as seen when Delta, Eunice and Franklin battered Britain.

  • Rain and wind expected

    The Met Office have confirmed that the UK can expect wet and windy weather over the next couple of days.

    Met Office Chief Meteorologist Neil Armstrong said: “An energetic, mobile weather pattern is driving successive low-pressure systems across the Atlantic over the coming days. With high pressure to the east of the UK these systems stall and weaken as they reach us and bring spells of rain and wind together with milder air.

    At this time no National Severe Weather warnings have been issued, however, that situation may change over the coming days so keep an eye on the forecast for your area.”

  • What to expect from the warning

    • Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely
    • Probably some bus and train services affected, with some journeys taking longer
    • Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges likely and damage to trees possible
    • Some short term loss of power and other services is possible
    • It’s likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves
  • Met Office yellow weather warning

    A spell of wet and windy weather with coastal gales and heavy rain will develop during Saturday afternoon.

    Gusts in coastal areas are likely to reach 50-55 mph and perhaps as high as 60 mph in the most exposed parts of Cornwall and southwest Wales.

    Inland, gusts will tend to peak at 45-50 mph away from hills and mountains. Wind will then ease a little during the evening.

  • UK forecast for today

    Early cloud and patchy rain in the north and east clearing to sunny spells for a time before cloud and rain return.

    In the south and west, early rain, heavy at times, followed by sunny spells and showers later. Windy.

    Often rather cloudy with showers or longer spells of rain, heaviest and most frequent showers probably over southern, western and central parts during the early hours.

  • What is a yellow weather warning?

    To help prepare people for potentially dangerous or disruptive weather, the Met Office provides colour-coded warnings to try and keep the public informed.

    They issue warnings ahead of severe or hazardous weather which has the potential to cause “damage, widespread disruption and/or danger to life.”

    The warnings are given a colour to reflect the seriousness, ranging from yellow, amber and red.

    Yellow is the least dangerous out of the weather warnings – it means “be aware”.

    Severe weather is possible over the next few days and could affect you.

    This potentially means cancelling plans, having to deal with travel delays, road and rail closures, interruption to power and the potential risk to life and property.
