Weather warnings for East Midlands

Wind gusts Potentially dangerous
From 2018-09-23 10:00 to 2018-09-24 00:59
During Sunday there is the potential for a spell of strong winds and a swathe of persistent heavy rain to affect southern Britain. The exact timing and intensity of the associated weather system still remains uncertain, but there is potential for strong winds to develop across the west early on Sunday, strengthening further as the system tracks eastwards. Should these occur parts of East Anglia and South East England might also suffer some coastal impacts from large waves, particularly at times of high tide. Winds should ease from the west later on Sunday.
Rain Potentially dangerous
From 2018-09-23 07:00 to 2018-09-24 00:59
During Sunday there is the potential for a developing weather system to track across southern UK, which is likely to bring a swathe of persistent and at times heavy rain, as well the potential for strong winds. Whilst there remains some uncertainty in the precise track and intensity of the system, and thus the location of the heaviest, most persistent rainfall, many places could see 20-30mm, with up to 50mm possible in some isolated spots. With strong winds also forecast in places, and recent heavy rain, drains and culverts blocked by debris could mean impacts in places which would not normally be affected by these rainfall amounts.

Satellite cloud cover (past 2 hours)

  • Precipitation:
  • <0.04”
  • 0.04-0.08”
  • 0.08-0.20”
  • >0.20”

The location marker is placed on Leicester.

This animation shows the cloud cover as observed by satellite. High clouds and clouds with vertical development are displayed in white, low clouds and fog in grey. This map uses infrared satellite telemetry to calculate the temperature of the clouds. Low clouds and fog are difficult to distinguish from ground temperatures and might therefore be inaccurate.
Precipitation is estimated from radar and satellites. At night precipitation estimates from satellites are less accurate than during daytime. Orange crosses mark places where lightning was detected (over Europe).
