Met Office warnings updated: ‘Danger to life’ 50mm of rain to hit parts of UK

Met Office weather warnings have now extended across the UK, as the country braces for another day of bluster. The agency released a barrage of new alerts for the country, with rainfall to cause inches of flooding. The yellow warnings have warned people’s lives could be at risk, on top of building damage and travel disruption.

Met Office weather forecasters have predicted up to 50 mm (two inches) of rain for the west coast today.

Their latest alert, released earlier today, said wider rainfall would hit 30 to 40mm (1 to 1.5 inches), but much higher in some places.

They said maximums could top three times the average expected at 150mm (six inches).

The result could cause power cuts, widespread travel delays, and even cut off some communities.
