UK weather: 32 flood alerts issued giving warnings of snow, rain

March 6, 2018 2:43 PM |


In the north, Britain is all set to be plagued by rain and snow while warnings of floods have also been given for the southern parts. However, a yellow warning has been issued for snow and rain in northern parts that could cause a lot of disruptions and time travel. Northern Scotland will be affected by scattered snow showers. Rain and hill snow is expected to start across southern Scotland and extending up to Northern Scotland till the evening hours today. Due to the snow, delays to travel and public transport could be possible on higher ground. Spray and flooding on low level roads will make journey times longer.


Meanwhile, according to reports, 32 flood alerts and 2 flood warnings that are spread across the country have been issued by the environment agencies.

The main areas where flooding is possible include Bow and Piddle Brook, Lower Avon and Tributaries, Lower River Soar in Leicestershire, Lower Tone and Parrett Moors, Mid Bristol Avon Area, Poole Harbour, River Chew catchment, River Dene in South East Warwickshire, River Esk, River Frome in Herefordshire, River Leadon Catchment, River Leam and River Itchen, River Lugg south of Leominster, Ledwyche Brook and River Rea, Rivers Blyth and Walpole and Chediston, Rivers in the Forest of Dean, River Sow and River Penk, River Tone Catchment, River Yeo and River Parrett Moors around Muchelney and Thorney, South East Somerset Rivers, Upper Reaches, South Somerset Rivers, Rivers Clyst and Culm and their tributaries, Upper Reaches, Bramfield and Wrentham watercourses, The Rivers Deben and Lark, The River Waveney from Diss and the River Dove to Ellingham, including Bungay, The upper Rivers Yare, Tiffey, Tas and Wacton, Tidal Thames riverside from Putney Bridge to Teddington Weir, Upper Avon River Swift and Clay Coton Brook, Upper Bristol Avon Area, Upper Tame, Upper Teme, Wear Estuary, Rea Brook and Cound Brook.

An area of low pressure will bring rain into Northern England, Southern Scotland and Northern Ireland and as it bumps into colder air we will see snow over the hills and by the afternoon the snow is likely to spread across Central and Eastern Scotland.

Bad weather will remain confined to the Northern Isles and the far north of the mainland. Elsewhere there will be clear skies. Conditions will be severely better in the south as the north sees dismal weather.

There will be lots going on over the next few days, as a slow return to slightly more normal temperatures will be seen and a lot of rainfall and snow melting at lower levels.
