Winds of up to 70 mph are expected over the Channel Islands tonight as a yellow weather warning for heavy rain continues in the south of England until 3 a.m. Thursday.

MeteoFrance said Hurricane Auror was affecting Britain due to rain and heavy winds.

Meteorological Office forecaster Becky Mitchell said: “We have received a yellow rain warning that will last through the remainder of Wednesday at 3 a.m., covering the southern counties and the Channel Islands.

“The areas covered by the warning will see heavy and continuous rain, mostly between 15-25 mm, but a few places will see a possible 30 mm or more of thunderstorms.

“Very strong winds are also likely, typically around 45mph on the coasts, reaching 70mph in the Channel Islands.

“This could cause some disruption to commuters tomorrow morning, as there could be flooding in some places – while there could be power outages due to the effects of thunder.”

Parts of the UK may receive up to two inches of rain over the next 48 hours.

The Meteorological Department said there would be heavy rain, thunder and “very strong winds” this morning.

“It is currently raining heavily and with thunderstorms over South West England, Wales and the Midlands,” the forecaster said.

He said, “There are some strong winds along with the rain, which will make travel difficult in many places.

“There is a small chance that floodwaters, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds could cause rapid flooding of homes and businesses with damage to some buildings.

disruption to passengers

“Spray and flash floods can make for difficult driving conditions and some roads may be closed.”

In places, the windows were broken by the force of the winds that shook Britain.

BBC meteorologist and meteorologist Simon King said on Twitter: “Given the damage, it is likely that a tornado occurred in Widnes this afternoon…”

One resident said he saw a trampoline flying 150 feet in the air while a car window was broken by a pole from someone’s garden.

Trees have been cut from the ground, with one video showing a huge uprooted trunk lying in someone’s front garden, and windows of the house shattered by gusts of wind.

Local resident Claire Earnshaw shared footage of the massacre and described the scene as “total devastation”.

David Nevitt said: “I personally feel really lucky, my family and home are fine.

“There’s an area nearby that’s been really badly affected, they’ll be devastated by the damage. We get very little bad weather.”

Dom Smith told Liverpool Echo: “It was clearly driving down the back lane and the next minute the coaches started flying in the air, the trees were going.

“Within about 20-30 seconds it went back to normal.”

Dom’s son Elliot said: “It came out of nowhere and then went away. It came and disappeared.”

Lynn Fraser said the tornado sounded like an “airplane engine whistle”.

He said: “The next minute I could hear things crashing and things breaking. I thought it was a house that was blown up or a bomb was blown up.”

A Met Office spokesperson told Online that weather conditions in Widnes meant a tornado was “likely” around noon.

“Tornadoes are not uncommon in the UK and we get about 35 per year on average, although numbers can vary markedly from year to year.”

Yellow weather warnings have been issued for parts of the UK, including London, Birmingham and Cardiff, with the possibility of two days of heavy rain.

flood protection

An elderly woman is hospitalized after a fence was torn down in strong winds in the Heath of Cardiff on Wednesday afternoon.

And this morning a frightened driver had to be rescued from a car stuck in flooding due to torrential rains in many parts of Britain.

In Fowey, Cornwall, firefighters struggle with floodwaters to reach the car after 7 a.m.

Cornwall Fire and Rescue tweeted: “Vehicle off road after being hit by flood waters.

“The driver was not injured but had to be helped by the car due to the depth of the water and the condition of the vehicle.”

In many areas there was a storm, there was chaos due to thunder and lightning.

England has four flood warnings and 16 flood alerts, while Wales has two warnings and eight alerts.

In Devon, there is a flood warning for the River Avon in South Brent, Avonwick and Aveton Gifford.

A pile-up blocked the M5 southbound carriageway in Exeter from Junction 30 to Junction 31 this morning.

And the A38 was blocked by another accident near Exeter Racecourse.

Many river levels are rising rapidly – ​​the Environment Agency issued several flood warnings, including one for residents living near Frome in Maiden Newton, Dorset.

The storm was accompanied by strong winds, affecting power supply in many areas.

More than 375 homes have no electricity this morning in Midsummer Norton, Somerset, and around 80 homes have been blacked out in Merthier Tydfil, South Wales.

Police have warned motorists to slow down as many roads were flooded.

snow is a go

Meanwhile, there is a chance of snow tomorrow – and it is likely to remain cold until the end of the month.

The first snowfall for the country is on Thursday, but thankfully for many of us, we will be unaffected by the headaches that snowfall can cause.

Met Office forecaster Anne Shuttleworth said: “On Wednesday night we will see a further southward move through Britain, and it may bring with it some snow.

“But it is confined to the high ground in Scotland. For most of us we will see rain on that front.”

The cold snap is tipped to last until Halloween, with hail and rain on an arctic chill.

The long-range weather forecast of the Meteorological Department said that the temperature is likely to drop next week.
