Met Office warnings UPGRADED: Amber alert as storm brings life-threatening flooding to UK

However the wet and windy weather is expected to continue over this weekend, as the Met Office forecast another “low-pressure system” approaching the UK from the east.

Steve Ramsdale, Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “It’ll be quite a miserable end to the working week for southern and south-west England as Storm Alex brings heavy rain and strong winds tomorrow, with coastal gales of around 60-65mph for some. 

“Away from the south it’ll be a more pleasant day, with light winds and bright spells for much of northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. 

“However, as the strong winds and rain associated with Storm Alex clear away from Britain later on Friday, another low-pressure system moves towards the UK from the east bringing further very heavy rain and strong winds to many over the weekend.”
