The UK will see wet and windy conditions continue in western and northern areas of the country today. The Met Office issued a severe weather warning for rain on Wednesday, forecasting up to 3.14 inches (80mm) of rainfall to batter some areas. In other areas of the country, warmer than average temperatures are expected as a result of a weather anomaly in the form of a 700-mile wide band of subtropical air arriving from the Azores leading to weather rising up to 6C on average temperatures.

Key points:

  • The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning for rainfall on Wednesday.
  • Forecasters predict conditions to turn wet and windy for many.
  • Central and eastern regions should remain dry until the evening when the rainy and windy weather pushes eastwards.
  • Winds could reach severe gale force around the Irish sea coasts.

Weather forecasters predict torrential rain to pummel some areas of the UK on November 11.

The Met Office issued a severe weather warning this week covering parts of Scotland advising of a risk of flooding and disruption.

The warning reads: “A band of rain will push in from the west during the early hours of Wednesday, this will persist throughout the day with accumulations of 1.6 to two inches (40 to 50mm) widely expected within the warning area.

“Potential for 2.8 to 3.1 inches (70mm to 80mm) in Dumfries and Galloway and across Skye.

“This will be accompanied by strong southerly winds.”
