Weather warnings for East of England

Wind gusts Potentially dangerous
From 2018-09-20 19:00 to 2018-09-21 10:00
An area of strong winds is likely to develop across parts of Wales and southwest England during Thursday evening before spreading further eastwards across England. The strongest winds are then expected to clear into the North Sea early on Friday. Most likely is that we will see gusts of 45-50 mph in a few spots inland as well as more widely around exposed coasts. However, there is a small chance that stronger winds will develop in some areas with 60-65 mph gusts possible, particularly overnight into Friday across eastern England. The strong winds will accompanied by short-lived outbreaks of very heavy rain in places.

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 St Albans.

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).
