Effective August 1st 2016, Weather Watch East Preston will no longer be providing daily forecasts or updates, whilst we may post in times of active/severe weather these will not be frequent and should not be relied on.
I would like to thanks everyone who has supported us over the past 4 years and helped us reach the current point. It has been a hard decision to make but due to a change in circumstances it is no longer possible to keep it going, we hope that you have enjoyed our posts / updates over the past few years and have found them useful.
We thank you for your loyalty and support.
The Met Office has issued a Yellow Warning of Rain
Issued at: 1129 on Sun 30 Aug 2015
Valid from: 0100 on Mon 31 Aug 2015
Valid to: 1700 on Mon 31 Aug 2015
Further areas of heavy rain or thundery showers are likely to affect parts of southeastern England and East Anglia at times on Bank Holiday Monday. The main risk periods would seem to be before dawn and again during the middle of the day and into the afternoon. The evening should see a slow transition to drier conditions from the west.
This update slightly reduces the northwestern extent of the area at risk from thundery downpours, and brings forward the end time of the warning. Given continuing complexities, a further update to the Warning is likely to be issued early on Monday.
The public should be aware of the risk of further localised flooding and impacts on holiday activities.
