Heavy rain and wind make rush hour commutes dangerous for Brits

As November’s blustery beginning continues, wet and windy conditions will wreak havoc for commuters, with the potential of flooded roads.

Overnight, portions of the South East of England experienced heavy rainfall, which continued this morning.

From midnight on Thursday to mid-afternoon on Thursday, a yellow warning for rain has been issued for the area between Portsmouth and Canterbury.

According to the forecaster, coastal areas might receive up to 40 millimeters of precipitation, and there are presently 12 flood warnings in effect around the country.

The Met Office reported that spray and flooding on highways might interrupt travel, with bus and train services perhaps being impacted as well as some flooding of homes and businesses possible.

Meanwhile, a yellow wind warning is in effect for the northern and northwestern regions of Scotland from Wednesday evening until Thursday morning at 8 a.m.

Strong southerly and south-southwesterly winds with gusts of up to 65 mph are anticipated on Wednesday.

According to the Met Office, Northern Ireland and western Scotland are enjoying a very wet and windy day, with heavy rain and gusts of up to 60 mph along the coast.

Throughout the day, it is anticipated that the strong winds and heavy rain will travel eastward.

Meteorologist-in-chief Neil Armstrong predicts that 30 to 40 millimeters of precipitation will fall in certain locations, and when it falls on land that is already saturated from recent precipitation and fallen leaves, there may be spray and flooding on the roadways, as well as travel delays.

“On Wednesday, a large portion of the United Kingdom can anticipate a period of strong southerly winds, although the warning region indicates where gusts of up to 65 miles per hour are expected to cause travel delays.”
