The Met Office has warned that the UK is set to be battered with heavy rain and strong winds over the next fortnight.
Across parts of Southern England Net weather charts predict up to 3.6 inches of rain will hit until the 12 May, whilst WXCharts forecasts up to 92mm in Hampshire and Berkshire, with 87mm in the South East, and 68mm in Wales.
The Met Office long-range weather forecast said there will be showery conditions with temperatures well below average for this time of the year over the next two weeks.
They added, “Each day, showers will develop fairly widely but most areas will also see some decent sunny spells.”
In the second half of the next fortnight, there will be a transition to more “persistent rain and stronger winds at times.”
Over the Bank Holiday weekend between Saturday, 1 to 3 May there will be a “cold and showery pattern.”
The Met Office said that this has the potential to “bring a mixture of sunshine, showers, and a cold east to the northeasterly wind”.
Adding, “Showers will be most frequent in the north and east, but could become quite widespread overland during the day.
“Some wintriness is probable over high ground of Scotland.”
Meteorologist Annie Shuttleworth said, “You could get some rain over the next couple of days.
“It has been a very dry April, with quite a few areas of the UK seeing quite a small margin of their average April rainfall.”
