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

It's definitely autumn

With the equinox behind us, it's autumn by anyone's reckoning and the weather certainly knows it. We're expecting plenty of changeable weather with areas of low pressure running across the UK from the Atlantic. This means we can all expect some windy and rainy days but with some drier interludes too. Temperatures are likely to turn a little fresher than of late too.

Monday 25 September—Sunday 1 October
Autumnal weather is on the way

This week begins with the calmest weather we're likely to see for a while. Things will be slow moving through Monday with pleasant sunshine for Northern Ireland, western Wales and southwest England. Elsewhere it will be a mainly cloudy day with patchy rain. There may be one or two sunny spells in the east but these will be unreliable. Tuesday looks set to bring more of the same with the exception of some patchy fog to start and strengthening winds in the west later on.

The middle part of the week will see a transition into more unsettled weather as a band of rain moves in from the west with strong, occasionally gale force winds. At times this rain will be heavy and we may see some localised surface water issues. Thursday will slowly improve as this band of rain clears eastwards but we end the week and head into the weekend with further rain bands crossing the country from west to east.

Monday 2 October—Sunday 8 October
Surely things will settle down soon?

Low pressure will still be very much in charge of our weather at the start of this week with bands of rain and strong winds punctuated by short, dry spells with some sunshine. The best of any dry weather will be in the east whilst the west bears the brunt of the rain. Temperatures look set to be around average by day but the mainly cloudy and breezy weather will hold overnight lows up above average.

There is a chance towards the end of this week that we could experience a period of settled weather but confidence in this is very low at this stage. It's all going to come down to how Hurricane Maria develops in the Atlantic.

Monday 9 October—Sunday 22 October
Nothing lasts forever

With weather systems running across the country fairly quickly you won't have to wait long for the weather to change. In the longer term we look set to maintain the theme of breezy and unsettled weather with large day to day variations. Again the west will bear the brunt of the rain and the east will be driest, but all of us will be reaching for the umbrella at some point. Temperatures will be around average for the time of year.

Next week

Can we finally expect some prolonged dry weather?

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.
