Weather Watch

Valid To: 15:00 Thu 23/5/24

Low pressure currently still developing but now across the UK will bring periods of heavy rainfall across the country through much of today and parts of Thursday. The worst of the rain will come north of the M4 corridor with parts of N England seeing large rainfall totals today. Localised flooding will be probable and there will be the added risk of tricky travel conditions, especially on the road network with surface spray very hazardous.

Below you can see the risk areas well with the rainfall accumulation data.

Broadly between 15mm to 30mm likely but across parts of Wales, N England and Scotland locally 30mm to 70mm with higher totals still for the most exposed locations. In addition to the rainfall the winds will pick up with gales possible for the coasts of NE England/E Scotland and along Irish Sea coasts.
