UK weather: Snow to hit Scotland hills in days – as UK warned to brace for flooding chaos today with yellow alerts | The Sun
16th November 2023

SCOTS are set to see snow in DAYS with the rest of Britain due to be lashed by more torrential rain and flooding today.

The Met Office is predicting a wintery weekend as Brits gear up for the festive season with a blanket of the white stuff forecast to settle in higher parts of northeast of Scotland.

Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: "For the start of Saturday, we keep the cold conditions at first across parts of Central and Eastern Scotland, so there will be a touch of frost in the northeast of Scotland and some snowflakes over the hills and mountains, as the rain bumps into into that cold air."

In the meantime, forecasters have issued another yellow weather warning for heavy downpours today – just as Britain recovers from havoc wreaked by Storm Debi this week.

It came into force at midnight and is in place until 11am today, during which meteorologists warn: "Heavy rain may cause some flooding and disruption to travel."

The warning covers the south coast of England, including Devon, Cornwall, Portsmouth and Brighton.

Met Office meteorologists said those affected can expect water on the roads extending journey times and delaying public transport.

Train services may also experience disruptions and cancellations.

The "flooding of a few homes and businesses is possible", and some areas could experience power outages.

At present there are also 13 flood warnings where disruption is expected, and 112 alerts where flooding is possible.

It comes as a band of heavy rain moves east across southern parts of England and Wales this morning.

The Met Office predict 10mm to 20mm of rain falling on average, while the worst hit areas could see up to 40mm.

Meteorologists added: "The heaviest rain will fall during the morning before easing and turning more showery by afternoon.

"Strong winds, gusting 40 mph near coasts, will accompany the rain."

Meanwhile, temperatures will remain chilly across the UK, with areas on the south coast just climbing to double figures in the afternoon.

The rest of Britain will hover at around 8C for the majority of the day.

This comes as dozens of flood warnings and a yellow weather warnings were issued after Storm Debi wreaked havoc on Brits this week.

The chaotic weather saw travel disruption and power outages hit the UK for days as the fourth storm of the season swept across the country.
