Coming in from France, Storm Alex is set to bring 65mph winds, heavy rain and the potential of flooding in some areas. The Met Office have issued yellow weather warnings for most of the UK with Wales, southwest England and eastern Scotland expected to be hit the worst.
Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office, Steve Ramsdale said: “It’ll be quite a miserable end to the working week for southern and south-west England as Storm Alex brings heavy rain and strong winds.”
Yellow Weather Warnings
The issuing of yellow weather warnings by the Met Office means they expect that flooding is likely in some urbanised areas. Costal areas may be affected by spray or large waves and delays are expected for travel as road conditions are likely to be affected. There may also be short term loss of power or other services in some areas.
