Important Announcement

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 Management

Yellow Warning of Rain

The Met Office has issued a Yellow Warning of rain.


Issued at: 0946 on Fri 15 Apr 2016
Valid from: 1200 on Fri 15 Apr 2016
Valid to: 2000 on Fri 15 Apr 2016

Warning Text:
Heavy, possibly thundery, showers or some longer spells of rain are expected to become more widespread through today, particularly this afternoon and early evening. Although some places will miss the heavier rain, where it occurs, please be aware of the possibility of local surface water flooding.

Chief Forecasters Assessment:
There are already some areas of rain and showers across southern areas, but as temperatures increase this morning, these are likely to become heavy in places, with localised downpours possible. Furthermore, as on recent days, the showers may well organise themselves into slow-moving bands of heavy rain, which may produce 20 to 30 mm of rain over 2 or 3 hours.
