Weather Watch for Heavy Rain

An intense and active cold front will push South-west during the course of Friday and overnight into Saturday.

There is now high confidence that an active wave depression will form on this frontal system whilst it resides across South-west England and Southern and Western areas of Wales. The exact position could well be slightly further North than this.

As the frontal system stalls so 20-30mm of rainfall could fall across higher ground. Overnight a wave depression will intensify bringing an additional 20-30mm to affected areas.

This amount of rain falling in such a short period of time on hard, dry soil cloud lead to local flooding issues, especially where drainage has been affected by early fall of Autumn leaves.

Advanced Weather Warning

A deep area of low pressure is expected to become the dominant feature of the weather across Britain and Ireland next week as it becomes slow-moving close to the northwest. We are expecting secondary systems to develop and circulate around the main centre, bringing spells of heavy and persistent rain at times.

Normally this wouldn't warrant an Advanced Weather Warning, but with strong winds also expected, then leaf fall will become a significant feature, blocking drains and run off. This combined with the hard, dry ground that currently exists in many areas following the record dry September will lead to an enhanced risk of localised flooding occurring in places next week as rainfall struggles to drain or soak away quickly.

Further updates will be issued nearer the time as details on where, when and how much rain will fall from these systems become clearer.
