Met Office name Storm Ciarán
Storm Ciarán will bring a period of strong winds and heavy rain across parts of southern England and Wales on Thursday.

This coming week will continue unsettled for much of the UK. A number of Severe Weather Warnings for rain are expected to be issued for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before a deep area of low pressure, named today as Storm Ciaran, brings strong winds and heavy rain to southern parts of England and Wales.

Met office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Chris Almond, said “Winds associated with Storm Ciarán are likely to gust to 80mph along the south coast of England, with a small risk of somewhere exposed seeing 90mph, and winds could even gust up to 50 or 60 mph further inland.

“This deep low-pressure system will also bring heavy rain to much of the UK, but the heaviest rain is expected in southern and western areas with 20 to 25mm quite widely across the region but up to 40 to 60mm potentially over higher ground.  Heavy and persistent rain will fall onto already saturated ground bringing a risk of further impacts such as flooding in areas that are already struggling to clean up from the heavy rainfall we have seen over the last week or so.”

Warnings will continue to be updated over the coming days, so it is important to stay up to date with the Met Office forecast and warnings in your area.

Severe weather event

Road users in the South East region of England are advised to check ahead and plan for disruption to their journeys due to forecast gales from 05:00 Thursday 2nd November until 18:00.

Storm Ciarán, is going to bring a swathe of very strong winds across the southeast region. While the wind is expected to be around 50-60mph in the northern half of the region, it will be much stronger along south coastal routes, with 65-75mph between Bournemouth and Ramsgate. The wind will gradually decrease from the west during the afternoon to become confined to Folkestone and Ramsgate by the evening.

There is a particularly high risk that high-sided vehicles and other 'vulnerable' vehicles such as caravans and motorbikes could be blown over.

Turning colder with a possibility of snow

Colder air is feeding from the north across many parts of the UK over the next few days. This brings the potential for wintry showers across North Sea coastal areas as well as some inland parts of northern Britain. These may bring some snow and ice impacts in the coming days.

Towards the end of the week there is a possibility of snow across parts of the south, but this is far from certain. David Oliver, a Met Office deputy chief meteorologist, explains:

“Snow in any affected area is unlikely to be anything more than transient and short-lived, but it could lead to small totals and some disruption over a few hours before melting.”

The UKHSA has issued a yellow cold-health alert for the health sector covering northern regions of England which runs through the whole week. 

Snowfall in late autumn or early winter doesn’t generally linger – especially in southern Britain - because ground temperatures broadly remain relatively high after the summer, especially compared with values in late winter, after the ground loses more of its warmth.

Unsettled ahead of Christmas

With low pressure dominating the outlook the UK will see some potentially disruptive weather with strong winds and periods of rain this week.

A notably deep area of low pressure will track to the north of the UK over the Norwegian Sea through Wednesday night and into Thursday. This is expected to bring very strong winds and heavy showers to a large portion of the UK, with a Yellow National Severe Weather Warning covering Scotland, Northern Ireland, Northern England and the north of Wales. 

It’ll remain windy for many on Friday, with further periods of rain likely to sweep in from the west, and some snow across the Northern Isles of Scotland.

It remains generally rather unsettled for the weekend before Christmas, with further Atlantic frontal systems bringing rain and strong winds to parts of the UK. Rain will be heaviest in the west and northwest through the weekend, with any snow most likely confined to high ground in northern Scotland. Some central and eastern areas of the UK could remain mostly dry.

There are still some uncertainties in the details of the forecast for Christmas Day.

White Christmas in Scotland despite warm temperatures

A white Christmas has been officially confirmed by the Met Office following snowfall in the Highlands of Scotland.

A mixture of rain and snow was reported in Tulloch Bridge and Aviemore on Monday afternoon despite mild temperatures elsewhere.

There was also light snowfall in Braemar, Aberdeenshire.

The Met Office also provisionally confirmed the highest daily minimum temperature for Christmas Day on record, at 12.4C.

Temperatures at Exeter Airport and East Malling, Kent, did not fall below 12.4C, the Met Office said, beating the previous record of 11.5C measured at Waddon in Croydon in 1983.

The highest single temperature was recorded at 13.6C at Exeter Airport, making it the warmest December 25 since 2016.

UK weather – latest: Heavy snow forecast as Met Office issues ice warning

Snow and sleet are on the way next week as temperatures plunge and the Met Office issues a yellow warning.

The warning will begin at 4am on Monday and urges the public to take care that ice and snow are likely to affect roads and train services across Greater London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

The Met Office said that temperatures will drop to near zero as “a mix of sleet and snow showers” moves in.

An amber cold-health alert for the North West of England, West Midlands, East Midlands and South West will be in place until Friday.

It came after the Environment Agency is warning more homes will be flooded in the next five days as overflowing rivers reach record high levels.

UK weather – latest: Heavy snow on the way as Met Office forecasts week-long cold snap
Met Office issues yellow ice warning for parts of South East England

Heavy snow is forecast for some parts of the UK this week as the Met Office warns of plunging temperatures and a week-long cold snap.

A yellow warning was issued on Monday, from 3pm to 3am on Tuesday covering the East of England, London, the South East, South West, Wales and parts of the West Midlands, with both regions set for “a mix of sleet and snow showers” that will move in from the east and send temperatures tumbling “near zero”.

Drivers are warned to take care on the roads as icy conditions are expected across Greater London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

Some snow showers could turn “quite heavy”, the Met Office said, adding that a few places could see 1-3cm of snow cover, mainly over the north Downs and on grassy surfaces.

The UK Health Security Agency has issued a cold weather alert covering the whole of England till Friday.

Met Office reveals when cold snap will end as temperatures to hit 15C in days
As the snow melts, flooding is expected over the weekend along with severe winds

On Wednesday night, huge swathes of the UK experienced the coldest nights of winter so far as temperatures plummeted to -14C - and lows of -9C are expected again on Thursday night. The drop in temperatures has been caused by a blast of Arctic air sweeping the country.

However, the Met Office has reported that temperatures could be turning milder as the weekend approaches reaching up to 12C on Sunday, with London getting as warm as 15C on Tuesday.

Storm Isha: Dramatic weather change ahead with new storm named

A dramatic change of weather is in store from this weekend, with weather warnings for strong winds and a new storm named by the Met Office.

Storm Isha - the ninth named storm of the season - will bring heavy rain and strong winds following the ice and snow of the past week.

The strongest winds are expected on Sunday night and into Monday morning, with two amber warnings issued.

Conditions will also become milder, with Friday the last really cold day.

The first warning is for much of southern Scotland, Northern Ireland, northern England, west Wales and south-west England, in force from 18:00 Sunday to 09:00 on Monday.

Another for south-east England comes into place from midnight to 09:00 on Monday.

Storm Isha: Most of UK issued with amber weather warning ahead of 80mph winds
The Met Office has extended its amber wind warning to cover most of the UK ahead of Storm Isha.

The weather system is set to batter “everybody” in the UK with wind and rain during a “rare” weather cycle, forecasters say.

Winds of up to 80mph will swoop in later on Sunday, potentially causing power cuts and loss of mobile phone signal, while roads and bridges are likely to be shut and transport services could face delays and cancellations in some areas.

Two 12-hour amber wind warnings will be in place from 6pm on Sunday until Monday morning. One stretches across central, eastern and western England and all of Wales, only missing London and parts of the south-east.

The other covers all of Scotland and northern England and Northern Ireland.

Storm Jocelyn is coming hot on the heels of Storm Isha

Met Eireann has named our second storm in 48 hours: Storm Jocelyn.

This has been the most active start to a storm season since records began and the earliest that we have reached the letter 'I' in the alphabetical storm-naming convention introduced by the Met Office.

Hot on the heels of Storm Isha, which brought winds touching nearly 100mph on Sunday night, Storm Jocelyn will bring windy conditions right across the UK with northern areas likely to be worst affected.

Sahara dust cloud headed to UK as Met Office warns cars could be covered by orange dirt

The Met Office has warned a huge Saharan dust cloud could be heading towards the United Kingdom.

Last year a similar cloud brought spectacular sunsets but motorists saw their vehicles covered in a fine dust that had travelled nearly 5,000km from the Sahara Desert. It is expected the new plume will be washed down from the atmosphere by rain falling as red dirt on Sunday afternoon.

Dust brings spectacular red sunsets because particles in the atmosphere scatter blue light more than red, which is why the sky appears blue during the day.

When the sun is low in the sky, like at dawn and dusk, the light has farther to travel and so the blue light is scattered too much for us to see it, with the Saharan dust exacerbating this effect and turning the skies a deeper red.

Amber warnings for snow issued

The two warnings cover North Wales from 8am until 3pm on Thursday and the South Pennines and Peak District from 12noon until 6pm on Thursday.

Outside of these Amber warnings there are Yellow warnings on Thursday for potentially disruptive snow extending from mid-Wales and the Midlands north. A warning for snow has also been issued for Northern Ireland, though disruption here is expected to be more localised.
