  • Stormy weather will cause chaos over the weekend

Snow could fall in southern Britain when a Spring chill grips the country - just days after the mercury hit a record-breaking 29C.

Flooding could lead to hard driving conditions and road closures, there is a slight chance of delays and cancellations to trian and bus services.

Yesterday we reported the Met Office had issued a weather warning for rain for Kent.

Some places could see up to 70mm of rain which will be accompanied by "strong to gale force northerly winds".

Trains and buses could also be affected with the Met Office warning of possible delays or cancellations.

The warning states: "There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings".

The Met Office reports that "feel like" temperatures on Sunday will be 4C, before rising to 6C on the Monday.


Winds from the north will be "unusually strong and gusty" reaching 40mph to 50mph inland in those areas and in the East Midlands and possibly 60mph along the coasts.

He said normally in April, 40 mm is equivalent to a month's worth of rain.

The BBC forecaster said: "It is going to be a pretty cold, wet and windy day".

A WEATHER warning for heavy rain across the Isle of Wight comes into force tonight (Sunday).

In contrast, much of Scotland and Northern Ireland are expected to be sunny with warmer temperatures.

However, it's all change this weekend with the mercury plunging into single figures and unseasonably chilly weather with a dismal mixture of high winds and heavy rain.
