It looks like more rain is on the way, we have just received this advice from the Met Office:
Just a precautionary heads-up to the possibility this afternoon and early this evening of a few lively showers which could align themselves up in a band and thus give one or two unfortunate locations enough rain to trigger some localised disruption from surface water excess (whilst a few miles away it stays bone dry). A Met Office Yellow warning is in force to cover this eventuality and today’s Flood Guidance Statement has Cumbria, Lancashire and Greater Manchester on Yellow (low flood risk) for surface water-related impacts.
Another day for giving an occasional glance towards the radar screen on Hazard Manager or the Met Office website during game breaks in the tennis.
I wish I could say the coming week was going to turn fine and warm but I’d be lying through my teeth if I did so here’s the true outlook (delete now if you can’t bear the thought of another poor week);
Staying unsettled and often on the cool side this week with further rain or showers at times although, apart from a low risk of disruption from heavy showers on Wednesday, there doesn’t appear to be anything particularly nasty on the horizon.
Enjoy the tennis,
Alan Goodman; Met Office Advisor (Civil Contingencies)
