About the Met Office Weather Warnings
BBC Weather carries two types of weather warnings issued by the Met Office: Warnings and Early Warnings.
Warnings will be issued when severe weather is expected within the next 24 hours.
Early Warnings will be issued more than 24 hours ahead of severe weather.
There are three categories of event Red, Amber and Yellow - the most severe is Red.
A Warning and an Early Warning of the same colour have the same severity but are forecast to arrive at different times. Thus, the difference between a Red Warning and a Red Early Warning is the lead time of the event.
When a warning is in force, full information can be found at Met Office Weather Warnings
About Flood Warnings
The flood warnings are issued by the Environment Agency, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and Natural Resources Wales, and sent to the BBC Weather Centre. We then issue a compendium of warnings based on the latest information available. When severe flood warnings are issued they will also be highlighted on TV broadcasts.
Find out more about Flood Warnings
There are a number of ways you find out whether your area is at risk from flooding. The Environment Agency, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and Natural Resources Wales update their warnings 24 hours a day via the Floodline number.

Typical autumn if it wasn't so mild
After the remnants of Hurricane Gonzalo gave the United Kingdom its windiest weather of the autumn so far, subsequent low pressure systems from the Atlantic have maintained this changeable weather pattern. This looks set to continue as we go into November. Whilst that may seem business as usual for the time of year, prevailing southwesterly winds look to keep things unusually mild with Jack Frost struggling to find work.
Monday 27 October—Sunday 2 November
Scotland's soaker heads south
The week starts with a soaking in northwest Scotland from a slow-moving weather front and potential impacts from some places receiving well over 100mm of rain. The front will finally move south through Wales on Tuesday reaching southern England by Wednesday but giving totals significantly lower than seen in Scotland. Behind it higher pressure will on Wednesday give a welcome spell of dry, sunnier weather for Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England but only after a colder night with a frost for some to start the day. Overall, though, this week's temperatures are expected to be mild or very mild. Cloudier, wetter weather returns from the west by the end of the week as another low pressure system arrives from the Atlantic.
Monday 3 November—Sunday 9 November
Still mild but drier for some
High pressure may push a little further north giving a drier spell of weather for parts of England and Wales. Weather systems will still bring rain at times though so it won't be completely dry and above average rain is signalled for northwest Scotland. Confidence is moderate to high that it will be mild in all areas. Where pressure is higher some nights will be cooler than of late but even here temperatures by day are expected to remain on the mild side.
Monday 10 November—Sunday 23 November
Winter may be approaching but it looks like winter weather isn't.... yet. There is moderate confidence that most parts will be unseasonably mild with temperatures above average by day and night in winds from the south or southwest. There will be some rain at times although the northeast of Scotland will perhaps stay drier with plenty of shelter from the Highlands in the southwesterly flow. With that flow above average rain is signalled for the Highlands. Also some rain may drift up from the continent at times with indications of above average rain in southeast England.
Will the mild weather give way to something more winter-like? Just don't ask if it's going be a white Christmas yet!
Monthly forecastingThe weather beyond about a week ahead stretches even the most experienced weather forecaster. Complex numerical weather forecast models from the Met Office and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) are run many times for the month (and season) ahead to build up a picture of the likelihood of different weather types affecting the UK.
