Latest weather forecast

FORECASTERS are expecting less severe weather across Cumbria and the rest of the north west as the region braces itself for the arrival of former hurricane Bertha.

Initial rainfall was mostly light and patchy overnight and was well ahead of original schedule.

A Met Office spokesman said today’s weather was expected to be rain at times which could be occasionally heavy.

He added: “Earlier ideas of a sustained six to 10 hour period of rain more likely to be broken up into various rainy interludes, some of which though could be heavy and perhaps give rise to some localised surface water flooding.

“Rainfall totals for today still riddled with uncertainty but potential still there for locally large totals to accumulate by late evening.”

Rain is expected to continue well into the evening across the region and it is expected to continue in north and east Cumbria into the early hours of tomorrow morning.

The spokesman added: “Gusts along the coast could reach 40-50mph with the odd gust up around 60mph on exposed sections. These could cause some minor issues locally.”

Conditions tomMuch brighter tomorrow with occasional sunny intervals and a scattering of showers.
