A severe weather watch is in place for much of England as ex Hurricane, now extra tropical storm Nadine edges closer to the UK.
It's not Nadine that is affecting us directly, she has spawned a very deep secondary low pressure system.
The cause of this is a strong Jet stream which is much further South, added with the very warm tropical air across the Azores, an area of low pressure has been allowed to form and it will head Northwards and hit the UK Sunday night, and last until Tuesday.
We have issued a severe weather watch;
As has the metoffice.
Winds are expected to gust to 50-60mph quite widely across many parts, although there is some uncertainity as certain weather models predict the low pressure to deepen rapidly bringing gusts of 70-80mph.
This system will bring boughts of very heavy rain, so flooding is a possibility.
