THE Met Office has issued a weather warning for Sunday – as the remains of hurricane Bertha approach.
A spokesman for the met office said: “There is the potential for severe weather over much of the UK during Sunday as a depression tracks over, or close to, the UK.
“There continues to be a great deal of uncertainty in the forecast but the public should be aware of the risk of flooding due to heavy rain as well as very strong winds and large waves, particularly on the southern side of the depression.
“Given the unseasonable nature of the weather this could be sufficient to disrupt transport and make outdoor activities dangerous.
“This is a particularly volatile situation, and this alert is likely to be updated as the event approaches. The public are advised to keep up to date with the latest forecasts and alerts through the weekend.”
The worst of the weather is expected to hit on Saturday night and Sunday morning, however there is still uncertainty over the ‘track and intensity’.
The heaviest rainfall is expected to fall around the north east of England.
