About the Met Office Weather Warnings

The Met Office warns the public and emergency responders of severe or hazardous weather which has the potential to cause danger to life or widespread disruption through the National Severe Weather Warning Service.

The Met Office issues warnings for rain, snow, wind, fog and ice. These warnings are given a colour depending on a combination of the likelihood of the event happening and the impact the conditions may have.

For more information, see the Met Office Weather Warnings Guide.

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

Monthly Outlook

Will April be sunny or is that a foolish thought?

We had a real taste of spring this weekend with British Summer Time starting off on an appropriately sunny note. However, spring is a season of big changes: April showers, strong sunshine, chilly nights, warm days - we'll probably see it all over the next few weeks.

Monday 27 March—Sunday 9 April
Will the sunshine last?

After a warm and settled weekend dominated by high pressure, the coming week's weather pattern looks a little more mobile. We'll start the week on a mostly dry note but heavy showers will push up from the south during Tuesday, followed by a rather wetter and windier theme for the end of the week. Temperatures will remain warmer than average though, with a few spots across eastern England reaching the high teens. By the weekend, high pressure will try to re-establish itself leaving sunshine and showers for most.

Monday 3 April—Sunday 16 April
A north-west / south-east split.

As we head through the first full week of April it should turn drier and brighter across the south and east of the UK as high pressure returns. However, it will probably remain on the wet and windy side across parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England. Temperatures should be slightly above average for many, and quite warm across south-eastern England.

Monday 10 April—Sunday 30 April
What about the rest of April?

Moving through April, a good deal of dry, settled weather is likely, especially for southern parts of the UK, with a more unsettled picture further north and west. Some wet and windy weather may well make it across the UK at times but such spells are likely to be short-lived. It looks as though it will stay warm too, although frosts may become a little more commonplace later in the month.

Next week

March wasn't especially windy, but will April's showers bring forth May flowers? Find out next week.

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.

Tuesday 28 March Published at 01:38


Turning unsettled this week, but staying warm for many.

Cloud and showery rain moving north, reaching southern Scotland later, perhaps turning heavy and thundery, mainly from the Midlands northwards. Low cloud, mist and coastal fog persisting for north-eastern areas. Some sunshine elsewhere and feeling notably warmer in eastern England.


A mild and rather cloudy night will follow with further outbreaks of rain affecting many parts, especially in the north and west. South-westerly winds will also strengthen.


Mainly cloudy, breezy with outbreaks of locally heavy rain moving north-east across northern and western areas. Generally dry in the east/south-east with some sunny spells, where it'll be locally warm.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday

Staying unsettled, particularly in the north and west with showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed with some warm sunshine. Breezy for most, particularly on Thursday and Friday.
