WARNING ISSUED AS HEAVY RAIN ON THE WAY FOR THE ISLE OF WIGHT


Heavy rain showers are expected to drench the Isle of Wight throughout today (Monday), according to local forecasters IW Met Service.

By late morning or early afternoon, heavy showers are likely to develop with the potential of up to 25mm of rainfall possible locally, some of which may fall in the same locations that received over 20mm during the early hours of this morning. This could potentially lead to some bank breaching of small streams and brooks on a local scale.

The heaviest showers are likely in more Eastern and North-Eastern parts of the Island with locations further South and West less at risk from the heaviest downpours. Some locations may miss out altogether.
