Yellow warning issued for heavy rain

The MET office have issued a yellow weather warning for Tuesday 18th December.

Heavy rain is expected between 5am and 9pm across the whole South West.

A MET office spokesperson commented; “Another spell of wet and windy weather is expected on Tuesday when rain will be heavy at times and, given recent wet weather, likely lead to impacts in a few places. Over most of Wales, Devon and Cornwall the worst of the weather will have cleared by mid-afternoon whilst further east the worst conditions are likely to be during the afternoon and early evening.”

“This wet weather, meanwhile, will be accompanied by windy conditions with gusts in exposed coastal locations around 50-65 mph which means that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities may be affected by spray and/or large waves. Inland, gusts will be lower and mainly peak at 40-50 mph”

“Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely and spray and flooding on roads will probably be making journey times longer and some festive events may be affected by poor conditions.”
