As the rain keeps falling it seems forecasts from the Met Office have now prompted yellow weather warnings that will last until 20:00 PM tonight. The environment agency has issued over 70 flood warnings and 181 alerts across southern England.
These warnings have been handed out to many regions across the UK, with areas in and around West Sussex expecting two weeks worth of rain in the next few hours. It comes as strong winds are predicted to whip up huge waves across the seafront today, which may lead to strong chances of flooding.
Those who reside down in the south of England have been told to prepare for power cuts, road closures and disturbances to travel alongside the weather warnings.
The Met Office has also given warning of potential floods caused by a costal surge in Cornwall. Many have been told to leave their caravans and/or properties along the county’s seaside by Tuesday morning and not to return until it is safe to do so.
On the rail line between Carlisle and Newcastle there has been disruption to train services as well as on the Cumbria Coast line between Carlisle and Maryport which has flooded and now caused cancelations on the northern line services.
In Brighton this afternoon we are expecting heavy showers, some of which have been described as locally torrential, these showers may last throughout the night to Tuesday morning.
