Weather: Brolly Alert! Two days of downpours set to drench Kent on Tuesday and Wednesday

Contributed by editor on Aug 07, 2017 - 07:25 PM



Kent is set for more heavy downpours according to the Met Office's latest weather warning for Tuesday and Wednesday issued today.


The Chief Forecaster's assessment is that from late Tuesday morning showers are expected to develop across parts of the east and southeast of England.

Whilst many will miss the worst of the rain, the heaviest showers could bring 25 mm in an hour to some spots with 40 mm in 3 hours possible.


Wednesday will also see the slow-moving weather system affecting southeastern parts of Britain and will give 20-40 mm of rain quite widely across the area, with perhaps as much as 60-80 mm in places through the whole day.


In some places 20-30 mm could fall within 2 or 3 hours.

However the Met office has said today that there still remains uncertainty as to the exact location of the largest rainfall totals.
