Weather forecast UK LIVE – Tropical Storm Alex to hit BRITAIN bringing brutal winds and rain

4

BRITS are set to face several days of grim weather this week – with thunder, heavy rain and gale-force winds of Storm Alex to lash Britain.

Storms will batter the country amid a miserably soggy start to the summer, with forecasters warning of floods and gales.

And the wet weather will continue this week, with heavy gales, thunder and rain to move in across the UK today, according to the Met Office.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Adam Thornhill said: “By the time Ex-Tropical Storm Alex gets near UK shores, it will have transitioned into a mature Atlantic low.

“Although it will have lost much of its strength, it will bring some unseasonably strong winds across the UK – especially to the northwest on Thursday and Friday. “

He added: “The track of the former storm currently looks to be grazing the far northwest of the UK on Thursday and Friday and, although the details are still being worked out, winds could be around 45mph for most in the north of the UK, with a chance of some gusts in excess of 55mph in some exposed northwestern island and coastal areas.” 

A yellow weather warning was issued yesterday to alert Brits to possible flooding, travel disruption and power cuts.

    “Ex-tropical storm Alex, which brought flooding to southern Florida, will track across the Atlantic over the next few days as a deep area of low pressure.

    “There’s still some uncertainty on how close this low-pressure system will get – and therefore how strong the winds will be.

    “At the moment it looks to get close enough to the UK on Friday to bring unusually strong winds for June, especially in the North West.”

    “The deep area of low pressure will weaken as it pulls away northwards towards the Faroe Islands over the weekend, with winds slowly easing down across the UK,” she added.
