Kent is facing a three days of wet and windy weather as Storm Alex arrives.
Heave rain is forecast for Friday and across the weekend, with weather warnings in force until Sunday.
The Met Office is warning of potential flooding in western and central areas of Kent as a result of the band of heavy rain heading north from France. There does not seem to be much good stuff coming from France at the moment.
Wind gusts of up to 65mph are forecast for coastal areas, causing large waves on Kent’s coastline.
We urge people to stay away from swollen rivers and not to drive though flood water
Over the weekend, another low-pressure system moves towards the UK – resulting in rain and strong winds. Yellow weather warnings will cover the entire county for both Saturday and Sunday. The good news is that there will be less migrants trying to cross the Channel this weekend!
The Environment Agency said “Heavy rain will bring the potential for surface water flooding and perhaps some river flooding across the south of England on Friday. More widespread and persistent heavy rain across much of England will bring the potential for further river and surface water flooding over the weekend”.
Have a great weekend!
