Storm Francis to bring heavy rain and severe gales to Cumbria, from Tuesday

SHARE:

Storm Francis has been named, and will wreak havoc across Cumbria, beginning Tuesday. A deep area of low pressure will bring heavy rain and the risk of severe gales. 

Weather Warnings have been issued by the Met Office. A spokesperson said:

"Storm Francis will bring another spell of very wet and windy weather during Tuesday and early Wednesday.

"Total rainfall accumulations are expected to reach 20 to 40 mm widely across the area, whilst over hills larger totals are likely with as much as 60-80 mm in a few places.

"Heavy rain is expected to result in some flooding and disruption to travel." 

From Monday night, wind will start to increase in intensity, bringing wind gusts of 60 mph and potentially 70 mph in exposed western locations.

Chief Meteorologist Andy Page, said “The UK is in for another unseasonably wet and windy spell with Storm Francis arriving on Tuesday. There will be strong winds and heavy rain, especially in the west of the UK. A number of severe weather warnings have been issued and these warnings can be updated regularly so please keep up to date with the latest Met Office forecast.”

Storm Francis will clear to the East of the UK by Wednesday lunchtime, leaving a brighter and more settled outlook for the remainder of the day. After a showery day on Friday the Bank Holiday weekend should bring sunshine to most parts for a time with scattered showers before further unsettled weather is expected to move in from Tuesday next week.

What to expect

- Bus and train services probably affected with journey times taking longer. 

- Spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer. 

- Some interruption to power supplies and other services likely. 

- Flooding of a few homes and businesses is likely.
