Met Office warns Wirral of flooding as heavy rain weather warning issued


The Met Office has warned Wirral to expect some flooding this week as more heavy rain is on the way.

A yellow weather warning for heavy rain is in place throughout Thursday when many areas could see over 30mm of rainfall.

The severe weather could bring flooding of homes, delays to transport and flooding of roads.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Neil Armstrong, said: “Late on Wednesday a weather front moves north eastwards across the UK bringing rain which turns to snow as it pushes further north and meets with colder air.”


“Although a Yellow warning for rain has been issued for Thursday rainfall amounts will generally be lower than last week, with many areas seeing 20-30mm.

“However, 50-70mm is once again possible in isolated spots across parts of the western Pennines, Greater Manchester, and North Wales, and rivers are still high in this area meaning further impacts could be possible.”

Heavy rain will batter the country thanks to the arrival of more milder air from the Atlantic, which will push temperatures back into double figures.

Wirral could see temperatures of 10C on Thursday making it feel much warmer than recently.
