Disaster has struck in parts of Britain as heavy rain has resulted in flooding, causing death and destruction. Over the weekend parts of the UK were battered by almost a month’s worth of rain, but the misery doesn’t stop there, as this week is likely to bring even more violent weather.

Met Office meteorologist Tom Morgan said: “We’ve got a deep Atlantic area of low pressure that’s bringing a very heavy band of rain and squalling winds across the whole of the country, but particularly in the south of England.

“We’ve seen some very strong gusts of wind on the south coast… and a few reports of damage from the winds.

“It’s not out of the question that there will have been some localised, brief funnel clouds or tornadoes.

“In the last couple of days, we have seen some reports and seen some photos of funnel clouds and water spouts, which are similar to tornadoes.”

After the wet weather felt over the Halloween weekend, the rain will subside somewhat in a few areas, but a mixture of sun and showers is expected.

As Monday goes on, the north of the UK will continue to see rain and wind, with much of the west coast of Scotland also getting drenched by heavy showers.

It will be drier in the Midlands and the south of England with the possibility of pockets of rain and cloud.
