UK More Rain Prompts 190 Flood Warnings, 300 Alerts; Danger to Life; Impacts on Traveling


Scores of flood warnings are in place across the country after days of heavy rainfall - and more is on the way.

The Environment Agency has issued around 190 warnings, meaning flooding is expected and immediate action is required.

There are also more than 300 alerts where flooding is possible, and one severe warning remains active at Helston in Cornwall - meaning there is a danger to life.

Many residents in the South West face Christmas with floodwater in their homes

Cornwall has been particularly badly hit. The streets of Lostwithiel are under water and residents are bracing themselves for further flooding.

Damn... Hoping the rain slacks off for ya UKer's!

Looks like travel is being impacted... So those of you that are getting ready to travel into flood hit areas stay safe!

Those of you who live in the areas flooding... stay safe and dry and I'm sending prayers and positive vibes your way!

Not just the rains but 70mph winds in northern parts, the wind coming from a tropical source made it feel like 14'c outside overnight. Not bad for the same latitude which in Siberia is currently at -40'c. People underestimate just how influential the Atlantic can be in winter.

Thanks Dr Acula. Its nice that there are people looking out for others, in other Countries. We will get through this but I feel sorry for the children who might not be able to wake up in their own rooms on christmas day because of the floods. I guess they might see it all as an adventure perhaps. Blessings to you, and you have yourself a merry christmas!

Midlands southwards are the worst areas hit, but Scotland overnight has been battered by a 80mph windfield embedded in the same system thats been bringing all the rain.

More rain for later this afternoon into tonight before making way for heavy showers on Xmas eve. Its quite something to be outside in a t-shirt and light rain-mac and not feel the slightest bit cold, considering the UK is on the same latitude as Alaska, Siberia, and Canada.

We're all in this life together...
I have a special spot in my heart for those going through severe weather!
So while im not being effected personally... That doesnt mean i'm not hurting for others who are... no matter their latitude and longitude.

I hope the kids can make the best of a bad situation and have a great Christmas :)

Blessings to you friend and may you and yours have a most awesome Christmas :)

Yes, the water table is high everywhere, so it's not taking much to flood.

Storm Forecast
Valid: Sun 23 Dec 2012 06:00 to Mon 24 Dec 2012 06:00 UTC
Issued: Sun 23 Dec 2012 05:13
Forecaster: VAN DER VELDE
A level 1 was issued for the south coast of Turkey for a chance of waterspout type tornadoes.

SYNOPSIS

A very calm day with deep convection only possible near low pressure areas situated over the Atlantic and between Crete and Turkey. Warmer air over western Europe is gaining terrain over the cold mass of air dominating northern and eastern Europe. The warm front starts invading Germany and should reach eastern Poland by the end of the period, while also Italy and the Balkan starting to warm up steadily. During the night new convection with isolated thunder is possible as cold unstable air reaches western Ireland.

DISCUSSION

...Crete to southern Turkey...

A stationary low with very weak flow in low to mid levels and a few hundred J/kg CAPE and nearly saturated profiles provide good conditions for formation of waterspouts, particularly in the vorticity and convergence zones provided by the low pressure center.
