UK weather forecast – Heavy rain set to hit the UK as flood warnings are issued across the country – The Sun

THE UK will face heavy rain again today, as flood warnings are issued across the country.

Weather forecasters said Brits would wake up to miserable weather with torrential rain hammering several parts of the country.

The UK has been hit with three devastating storms over the past month, bringing flooding misery to thousands.

But as Storm Jorge moves on, the UK is set for an icy blast and even snow in some parts.

Temperatures are expected to plummet as we move into March, with wintry showers forecast for some higher ground.

The Environment Agency has issued 52 flood warnings and 104 alerts.

It comes as unwelcome news for those Brits — forced out of their submerged homes — after the country saw a flurry of named storms bursting river banks and battering defences.

Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: "It's going from bad to worse, with more rain topping up rivers."

"The weather is in no hurry to leap into spring — cold air coming straight down from Greenland means temperatures close to the coldest winter from Sunday night to Tuesday."

Temperatures could even fall to -9C in Scotland, the forecaster added.

In the early hours of this morning temperatures fell to below zero in Loch Rannoch, Scotland — while Brighton in south east England dropped to zero.

Parts of the north east are expected to see the coldest weather over the next few days, with snow falling over hills, report the Met Office.

As well as winter showers, more rain is forecast for this week, continuing the miserable conditions seen for most of February — which was recorded as one of the wettest February months on record.
