Warnings of more rain for the Isle of Wight have been issued by the Met Office.
Friday: Across most of southern England and south Wales, local heavy thundery downpours are likely this afternoon and evening.
Saturday: A slack and deeply unstable airmass is expected to cover much of the southern half of Britain on Saturday. Heavy and thundery showers are likely to affect parts of Central and Eastern England on Saturday, some of which could be slow-moving giving spells of more persistent heavy rain.
Earlier this week… According to Met Office Forecast: “A cold trough across the country will lead to some active shower development, with the focus across eastern areas.”
Starting predominantly cloudy, rain is expected to break out on Tuesday and become more widespread before clearing away eastwards. However, some heavy showers could develop in places across the South East during Tuesday afternoon.
Large amounts of rainfall may bring a risk of surface water flooding, as well as general difficult driving conditions.
Isle of Wight Weather Outlook:
Heavy showers and thunderstorms are likely to develop in some areas through Wednesday.
Outbreaks of heavy rainfall are expected to cross southern areas of England during Thursday.
Renewed heavy rainfall and strong winds will spread north and east on Friday, affecting much of England and Wales.
Met Office Forecaster: “An active frontal zone will move east across southern Britain on Thursday. Amounts of rainfall are uncertain, but could exceed 20mm locally – not normally much of an issue, but given the wet ground some problems are possible.”
“On Friday, a potentially vigorous depression looks like crossing southern Britain bringing a swathe of heavy rainfall. Amounts of rain may exceed 40 or even 50mm in places bringing a renewed risk of flooding following on as it does from the wet conditions prevailing for much of this week.
“Strong winds, perhaps gusting in excess of 45mph may prove an additional hazard across the south.”
