West Norfolk weather warnings in place with heavy rain expected

Weather has forecast strong winds and heavy rain to barrel across the United Kingdom as a low-pressure system covers the whole country.

A Met Office warning for strong winds is also in place all day Saturday. According to the BBC Weather chart, on Friday nearly the whole of Britain is covered by a rain system which will be followed by powerful gusts. Southeast to east winds fresh to strong and gusty, with winds reaching near gale on coasts with gale-force winds on northern coasts by morning, winds veering southerly as the rain clears.

"The pressure chart looks like something from Autumn".

But despite water levels having since dropped, the Met Office's flood warning for Friday includes Whaley Bridge, meaning the dam will yet again be at risk of collapse.


She said: "We are looking at some very disturbed weather by the end of the week....it is all tied into this low-pressure, unusually deep for August, pushes its way across the United Kingdom on Friday".

Ms Kent added: "The first band of rain could bring 30mm of rain in places, and if you draw the short straw, then you could get another 30mm with the showers that follow".

Heavy rain over much of Munster and Leinster early tonight, will extend to Connacht and Ulster later in the night and overnight.

"Yes there will be some showery rain around but also some dry weather but also some sunshine and the winds will slowly ease".


The Met Office said heavy rain will set in on Friday, with flooding expected in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Friday's and Saturday's yellow warnings have been labelled "severe" and cover the majority of the country, with Saturday's rain being the worst.

A second weather warning for the Isle of Wight has been issued by local forecasters IW Met Service - this time for heavy rain.

Heavy rain followed by heavy showers and thunderstorms could hit the county.
