Severe Weather

The sun may already have set on Britain's brief summer as forecasters predict much of the country will suffer torrential rain and gale-force winds this week. The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning for the whole of Britain, as the northern and Midlands towns which have only just recovered from devastating floods in June and July brace themselves for further misery. Experts predict as much as 2in (5cm) of rain could fall in some areas today, bringing with it the threat of flash flooding, while the entire south coast is expected to be battered by gusts of up to 50mph which could whip up waves to dangerous levels. Thunderstorms are likely tomorrow and colder temperatures are forecast for the end of the week with no quick return to summer in sight. "The winds will be UNUSUALLY strong for this time of year - we're looking at gusts of up to 50mph along the coasts and maybe 45mph inland."
