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.

Monthly Outlook

Summary
An unsettled end to June, so what will July bring?

Last week brought a real mix of weather with some warm sunshine but also frequent thunderstorms, flash flooding and reports of funnel clouds in places. Although the week ahead doesn't look quite as lively, it is set to stay changeable with many of us seeing some rain at times before a more typical northwest-southeast split develops during the first couple of weeks in July, bringing the best of any settled spells towards the southeast.

Monday 27 June—Sunday 3 July
A mixed bag for all this week

Wimbledon starts this week on a dry and bright note, but northern areas are likely to see some showers in places. From Tuesday onwards we are likely to see spells of rain move eastwards across the country at times, but in-between there will be some sunnier interludes. The heaviest of the rain is always likely to the west, where it will be windy at times too, with the southeast seeing the best of any drier and brighter weather. Temperatures are likely to be close to the seasonal average, so certainly a contrast to this time last year when we experienced the hottest July day on record, with 36.7C recorded at Heathrow on 1st July last year.

Monday 4 July—Sunday 10 July
Wimbledon continues, but will the sun shine?

As we head into the first full week of July we see plenty of fetes and festivals taking place across the UK, including T in the Park in Perthshire. At the moment we can expect the changeable theme to continue across the UK. The most frequent spells of rain are likely towards the northwest with the southeast seeing the best of the drier and brighter weather. In the strong July sunshine it will feel warm but under the rain it will tend to feel rather cool for the time of year.

Monday 11 July—Sunday 31 July
Any signs of the weather settling down?

At first, the changeable theme seems set to continue, with the northwest seeing the most unsettled weather whilst the best of the drier and brighter conditions remain closer to the southeast. We may see a more settled spell of weather develop for a time across the UK bringing some warmer and more humid conditions, especially in the south but this in turn may trigger a few thunderstorms.

Next week

As we approach the summer holidays, will the temperatures begin to rise?

Monthly forecasting
The 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.
