Britain is expecting more severe weather this weekend as Storm Brigid makes its way across the Atlantic

A heavy storm headed

for the UK is expected to bring winds of up to 150mph, rain and snow to our

shores tonight.

Storm Brigid is

currently gathering pace across the Atlantic and could bring severe weather

conditions to Britain for at least three days.

Weather experts are predicting

several inches of rain to fall in a matter of hours over the weekend.

Some parts of England

have already experienced the wettest January since records began.

The south west of

England is set to be the worst affected by the storm with the Met Office

issuing amber weather warnings across the region for torrential rain and high

winds until Sunday.

The public are being

warned that there is a risk of a flooding across the UK as a result of Storm

Brigid.

Elsewhere in the

country, London and the south east have been issued with yellow weather

warnings, while the north west of England faces snow, heavy rain and gale force

winds.

Met Office chief forecast Frank Saunders said: “As another deep area of

low pressure moves in from the Atlantic on Friday, it will bring heavy rain and

gale force winds to much of the UK.

“20-30mm of rain is likely during this period, possibly exacerbating the current flooding situation.”
