0

A severe weather warning has been issued as Hurricane Oscar is set to batter the UK over Bonfire Night weekend.

A Met Office spokesman confirmed this as he told media: “Heavy rain will spread from the west later Friday evening will last for much of Saturday, before slowly clearing from the northwest.

“30-50mm is expected quite widely, especially on high ground with 60-80mm possible in a few areas.”

Currently, the hurricane is powering north through the Atlantic, and it’s feared it could merge with a separate low-pressure system as it bears down on the UK. A yellow weather warning for rain is in place across western Scotland, with as much as 80mm expected to fall in some places on Saturday.

Rain will also lash western England and Wales throughout the day with heavy downfalls forecast, the Met Office added.
