Wind Warning

Heavy rain is likely to lead to some disruption to travel

Valid 2am to 2pm Wednesday 21st October


What to expect

  • Bus and train services probably affected with journey times taking longer

  • Spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer

  • Flooding of a few homes and businesses is possible.

The Details

Heavy rain will move north during the early hours of the morning and persist through the peak morning travel period, before clearing northeastwards.

10-15 mm of rain will fall widely, with as much as 30 to 50 mm in a few locations.

With much of this falling in a short period, around 3 to 6 hours, some surface-water flooding is likely in places, leading to disruption to travel.

The rain may be accompanied by gales across parts of southeast England, perhaps most likely towards the Kent and Sussex coasts.
