Severe weather warning across Surrey and Hampshire

Severe weather warning across Surrey and Hampshire

Published by Carol Musgrave at 10:42am 30th September 2019. (Updated at 11:14am 30th September 2019)

We are warned of the chance of disruption due to heavy showers tomorrow,  as the Met Office issues a severe alert for rain.

A yellow weather warning is in place from 6am to 8pm across all of Surrey and Hampshire, as well as most of the south of England and Wales, with the chance of up 50mm in a couple of hours.

Travel could be affected, with difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

There is also a slight chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services.

The Met Office warns of a small chance of flooding of fast flowing or deep floodwater causing danger to life.

Properties risk being flooded and there is a small chance of power cuts.

It looks as if we will get the worst of the rain in the afternoon.

Here's the Met Office's detailed forecast for the day:

"Heavy showers are expected to affect south Wales and southwest England on Tuesday morning then other parts of southern England during the day, peaking across the southeast during the afternoon. 

"These will become slow-moving for a time with some very large rainfall totals possible in a few places. 

"Whilst many places will see showers, the majority of places will see only relatively small rainfall accumulations. 

"The highest rainfall accumulations are only likely to occur in a few spots where the showers become slow-moving, with 40-50 mm possible in only a couple of hours. 

"Lightning and some hail may also prove additional hazards for one or two locations. 

"The showers will clear from the west and the north later in the afternoon but persist in the southeast into the evening."

The Met Office forecast for Wednesday is for dry weather, with sunny spells, but a chilly breeze.

It could turn wet again on Thursday, and windy, after a dry and chilly start.

Unsettled weather could continue through to Friday.
