A heavy rain front is coming up the Bristol channel. Either side of the Bristol Channel, South Wales and Somerset could see almost an inch of rain. In the short term, Jim N R Dale Senior meteorologist at British Weather Services speaking to Express.co.uk said that there could be “a little bit of a deluge”.

The author of ‘Weather or Not?’ also added that there will be “plenty of dry, bright weather this weekend but there will also be some wetter exceptions” in the Bristol Channel area.

The Met Office has released a flood alert for the Somerset coast at Porlock Weir.

The Met Office has also warned that in this area “flooding is possible, be prepared”.

Mr Dale of British Weather Services forecasted that the south of the UK would experience “problematic” weather in the last ten days of September.

He said that there would be “heavy pulses of rain and thunder on a weather front coming off the Bay of Biscay”.

This weather would arrive in late September and bring the threat of flooding and issue in autumnal weather.

For today the Met Office said, “many areas of the country will start quite cloudy but a better chance of seeing some sunshine at times by afternoon”.

The meteorological centre added: “There will be a few showers scattered around, but these mostly light.

“Parts of northern Scotland wet and cool, with some heavy rain, easing later.”

Tonight temperatures will drop and turn chilly in the north of the country.

Sunday will see the most rain, particularly in southwestern areas.

The Met Office has said that in these areas “there will be rain probably reaching parts of Wales, west and southwest England”.

In Scotland, there are flood alerts in place in Caithness and Sutherland and in Orkney.

For the last five days of September, the Met Office has released a statement that read: “The most likely scenario is that conditions remain more unsettled overall from mid-to-late September.

“Beyond which a trend to more settled conditions is probable, especially across the south.

“Within the unsettled period, there is a very low risk of very disturbed, perhaps stormy conditions.

“Rainfall expected to be above average, although may trend to near or drier than average late into September and into early October.

“Temperatures are likely to remain above average throughout.”
