UKww Weather Watch Heavy Rain & Gales

Valid from: 1800z Weds 2nd - 1800Z Thurs 3rd September 2009;

Areas affected:  England, Wales Weds-Thurs am then N England/Scotland thereafter

General evolution: Humid, moist air associated with the remnants of Tropical Storm Danny is caught up in an Atlantic depression with a rather southerly track (centered 992 mb Cork at 1600 BST; tracking NE and deepening 988 mb, just off Tyneside, by 0600 Thursday).

Forecast: Rain already into parts of Wales and SW England continues and extends N and E overnight, with heavy and prolonged bouts, risk local thunder and strong gusty winds. Totals of 25-40 mm (50+ over hill country) enough to cause poor driving condituions and local flooding with rivers already high this week in many areas. Gales along the south coast tonight into tomorrow, easing towards midday, with gusts over 60 mph possible especially from the Isle of Wight eastwards - enough to cause tree damage given full leaf and wet ground as added factors. The heaviest rain moves NE into Thursday to give Scotland in particular a very wet day (again 50 mm+ over hill country) before it clears into the North Sea towards the end of the forecast period.

In such situations two links are useful to monitor developing conditions (as well as reports here on UKww):
