Heavy rain and gale-force winds cause flooding and power cuts across UK

The UK was battered by gale-force winds and heavy rain.

Parts of England and Wales were flooded as a result of the bad weather, with homes in Pembrokeshire submerged in up to 10ft of water and power getting cut off for thousands of properties.

Western Power Distribution said it had 2,500 customers ‘off supply’ yesterday evening.

The Met Office has issued ten flood warnings and around 60 flood alerts across the south west of England and Wales.

A localised yellow weather warning for rain has been issued for Pembrokeshire for most of today.

But the weather won’t be as temperamental as it was yesterday and overnight.

During the day, temperatures are expected to remain a few degrees above average for the time of year, although the wet and windy weather will likely make it feel cooler.

Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkhill said: ‘It’s going to be a breezy day for most places with showers around for the South and West.

‘We could get spells of more regular showers pushing westwards during the day, reaching central parts in the afternoon.

‘Those showers could be heavy with a bit of thunder mixed in and possibly some hail.

‘The north-east of England and Scotland could stay dry.’

Today it will be an unsettled start for Wales, north-west England, southern and eastern Scotland as well as southern counties of England, with scattered showers, heavy at times.

Elsewhere it will be mostly dry with clear spells.

Tomorrow there will be sunny spells and showers, mostly in the south and west, with thunder possible for some.

But it will be a largely fine and dry day in the east with sunny spells.
