UK weather – Hurricane Lee aftermath to batter Brits with yellow warnings for two days in a row | The Sun

BRITS are braced for more wet and windy weather with the aftermath of Hurricane Lee set to batter the country.

The Met Office have issued yellow weather warnings for rain for two days straight in parts of the UK as soggy conditions continue.

The forecasters' warnings are in place for 36 hours and came into place from 6am today.

Northwest England and parts of Wales are the regions which are worst affected by the warnings, according to the Met Office.

Meteorologists said remnants of Hurricane Lee, which hit New England in the US and eastern Canada, would particularly affect parts of west Wales, Cumbria and the Pennines.

However, it will no longer be a hurricane by the time it reaches UK shores.

Forecasters added that between 50mm and 100mm of rain could fall in the areas which were issued yellow warnings.

They warned homes and businesses are likely to flood, and electricity could be affected.

People planning on travelling face the prospect of delays or sudden cancellations to trains and busses.

Roads may be closed at short notice due to spray and sudden floods and "difficult driving conditions" are expected on those that remain open.

Coastal gales will also develop in the west with strong winds expected to build up during the day.

A Met Office forecast read: "Rain in the west will become more persistent and heavy through this evening.

"This will start to spread southeastwards into the early hours.

"A mild night and remaining windy."

It comes after hundreds of Brits woke on Sunday night as the torrential rain bucketed down and gales battered homes.

In Sussex a "weak tornado" may have been to blame for shattering windows, the Met Office said.

The forecaster told The Sun: "It is possible that some of this vorticity (spin) could have been stretched by the strong convective updraughts and formed a short-lived/weak tornado.

"We have no observational evidence to support this, but it is possible."

Looking forward to tomorrow, rain will continue southeastwards but "winds are slowly easing for most", according to the Met Office.
