Due to a tropical storm hitting the Atlantic, forecasters have predicted a large band of rain will spread to the UK from Monday. Although this tropical storm will cause unusually high temperatures, it will also bring between 75 and 150mm of rain over a matter of days. The Met Office reported the worst of the rain will be focused on the North-West of England next week.
They said in a tweet: “Some Northwestern parts of the UK could see between 75 and 150 mm of rain between Monday and Wednesday, which is near to the average monthly rainfall for November.”
Such is the torrent of poor weather set to hit the country, the Government has issued a five-day flooding warning which will last until November 18.
A statement read: “On Monday coastal/tidal flooding is probable along the Yorkshire coast and is possible along the north-west coast and other parts of the north-east coast of England.”
The heavy band of rain is being produced by Tropical Storm Theta which is currently gathering in the North Atlantic.
The first waves of the heavy band of the poor weather hit today with parts of Wales and England experiencing the worst of the weather.
Despite the downpours focused on Wales and the South-West temperatures remained higher than the monthly average.
Such is the severity of the band of weather, the Met Office has warned of potential gales in coastal areas.
These showers are expected to pass across the country before a second barrage of wind, rain, and potentially thunder hits the UK on Sunday.
“Bands of showers or rain moving northeast across the country.
“Some sunshine between. Winds easing across Scotland, otherwise windy, especially in the south where coastal gales are possible.
“Initially bright with showers Monday, before rain, heavy at times affecting the west and northwest.
“Drier and brighter in the east and southeast. Remaining windy and mild throughout.”
The forecaster has also predicted the wet and wind weather to remain in place for much of the month.
