There has been widespread rainfall across the country and the Met has reported that the deluge will continue over the next few days. Such is the severity of the rainfall, that the Met Office has issued amber and yellow warnings in the UK. Commenting on the forecast, Met Office Meteorologist, Luke Miall reported that the amber warning will be mostly restricted to southern Scotland.
Mr Miall added: “The heavy rain will continue through much of today so warnings are still in force.
“We have an amber warning in force and there’ll be some treacherous conditions out there first thing on Thursday.”
Aside from the amber weather warning in southern Scotland Mr Niall also added that there will also be heavy rain in northeast Wales and northwest England.
An amber weather warning means that there will be a likelihood of impacts from severe weather causing power cuts and the potential risk to life and property.
