Four ‘yellow’ weather warnings are in place from Saturday evening all the way through to Tuesday afternoon, covering Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, Liverpool, Bangor, Swansea and Cardiff.

Brits in those areas are braced to expect flooding and spray on the roads is likely to cause travel chaos – according to the forecasters.

Gusty winds and hige tides could bring some problems to people living near the coast – as coastal flooding is expected with the delgue.

Interruption to power supplies is also likely and could cause power cuts as the weather takes a turn for the worst.


Luke, a Met Office meterologist, told Sun Online that there will be a mixture of sunshine and showery weather over the weekend, but winds could reach gail force and tides will be some of the highest we’ve seen this year.

He said: “The UK will experience high tides this weekend, and combined with strong winds may cause some issues and coastal flooding.”

“Fairly brisk winds are expected near the coast, which could reach gail force at times.”

We’ll see a wet and windy start to Sunday, with the yellow weather warning in place from 6pm Saturday to 5pm Sunday.

Two more weather warnings are in place for Wales, lasting from 3pm Monday until the same time on Tuesday.

The warnings come as the tail-end of Hurricane Humberto continues to batter the UK, bringing travel chaos.

The Met Office has urged Brits to take care as gale-force winds of up to 45 miles-per-hour are reportedly set to batter parts of Scotland.

The fresh warnings come after a month’s rain fell in just six hours earlier this week – closing four major train and London Tube stations.

Thousands of passengers were delayed as London’s Liverpool Street, Moorgate, St Pauls and Victoria stations were forced to close due to flooding.
