UK weather: Two days' worth of yellow weather warnings to hit after Storms Fergus and Elin batter Britain | The Sun

BRITS have been warned of two days' worth of yellow weather alerts this week after being battered by two storms.

The Met Office warned Storm Fergus would bring "strong winds and heavy rain" yesterday and today – just after Storm Elin battered the country with strong winds and downpours on Saturday.

Both storms, named by Irish Meteorological Service Met Éireann, saw bands of rain sweep across Wales, along with northwest England and southwest Scotland.

A whopping 1.5 inches of rain fell at Blencathra, in the Lake District, yesterday as much of England got a drenching.

Meanwhile, the Met Office recorded provisional peak gust of 81mph was recorded at Capel Curig, Wales.

A fresh flood warning for York was issued this morning as the River Ouse burst its banks, leaving properties and vehicles partially submerged.
