Stormy weather continues this week
Feb 10, 2014 5:53 PM
Met Office forecasters are warning of further spells of stormy weather this week, bringing the possibility of further disruption.
After a quieter day on Monday, another low pressure system will bring rain and gales from the west overnight for Tuesday. This will also bring snow to the higher ground of northern Britain, especially Scotland.
Unsettled weather is then expected for the rest of the week, with further storms due to track across the UK on Wednesday and again towards the weekend.
The Met Office has issued several Severe weather warnings for the next few days due to the possibility of flooding and damaging winds. The public are advised to stay up to date with these warnings and the latest details from our UK forecast during this time of particularly unsettled weather.
Martin Young, Met Office Chief Meteorologist, said: "We are expecting more Atlantic storms to affect the UK this week. This will bring the continuing risk of flooding. In addition damaging winds could bring down trees to cause disruption to travel and power networks.
"There is some uncertainty about the track these storms will take, and therefore which areas will see the strongest winds and heaviest rain. We are monitoring how they will develop and will keep everyone up to date through our forecasts and warnings."
The stormy conditions will also continue to bring the additional risk of large and potentially hazardous waves in coastal areas.
Throughout this unsettled spell Met Office forecasters and advisors are working round the clock with our partners to keep everyone up to date with the latest forecast information so they can plan and prepare for the expected weather.
