UK weather: Two flood warnings issued as Brits brace for unpredictable week


The Scottish Environment Protection Agency has issued two active flood warnings for two regions in Scotland. They warn that flooding is possible and urge residents to be prepared.

The flood alert is the lowest level of flood warning that can be issued and has been active for the Scottish Borders and Dumfries and Galloway since around 5pm on Sunday.

The warning will last until further notice but is thought to end on Monday morning.

The Agency has also warned that “there is a risk of localised flooding impacts from surface water and smaller rivers”.

They added: “Impacts may include flooding to low-lying land and roads and disruption to travel.”

Residents in the affected regions have been advised to “remain vigilant and remember, it is your responsibility to take actions which help protect yourself and your property”.

“Advice and information are also available through Floodline on 0345 9881188.”

BBC meteorologist Matt Taylor warned that the beginning of the week can expect some wet weather conditions.

He said: “Between 40 and 80mm of rain especially around the hills and the coasts of the west of Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.”

According to Mr Taylor, “temperatures are average for this time of year”.

Those attending Wimbledon from the middle of the week will face unpredictable weather with “very unsettle conditions on Wednesday with brisk and sharp showers across the UK”, according to the BBC.

This weather will continue into the latter half of the week with a mixture of wet and dry spells before brightening up for the weekend.

Areas in the south on the weekend will be between 19C and 22C, according to WXCHARTS, with Scotland remaining chilly in the low teens.
