Yellow weatherA severe weather warning has been issued by the weather experts of Britain’s Met Office as a 1,500 mile wide Atlantic Storm is about to bring early autumn along with heavy shower, strong winds and huge waves.



The Met Office has issued a warning about a stormy weather in the southern part of the country. The forecast states that from Friday, 19th August, many regions of the country will face an Atlantic storm with heavy gusts. On Saturday 20th August, the Southern and Northern parts of the country will experience winds up to 55 mph and 40 mph.



One of the forecasters, Paul Knightley, has stated, “A big low pressure system is coming in. It’s unusual for August, and a big contrast to last weekend. Holidaymakers should exercise caution. Gusts could higher than 55 mph in exposed areas. Rain could total an inch on Welsh hills, with 10 mm including heavy bursts elsewhere.”



According to Met Office forecaster Emma Sharples, the weather will be a lot more changeable from Friday as a band of rain will push across the entire country. She has informed that Saturday will be very windy with showers. But after a better Sunday, the wet and windy conditions will spread across most of the UK with heavy rain in the North-West.


The official warning for Saturday by the Met Office says, “Unseasonably strong winds accompanied by heavy, blustery showers are expected to develop across the South later on Friday and peak during Saturday. Gusts up to 45 mph inland and 45 to 55 mph along exposed coastlines are expected, with large waves on exposed coastlines. Be aware that these may lead to disruption to transport, with increased potential for disruption to holidaymakers.”



It looks like the sunny and warm weather of Britain is about to bid goodbye to the sunbathers and the holidaymakers very soon.
