A series of Yellow National Severe Weather Warnings are currently in force across the UK, including Oxfordshire.

Although some may experience bright and sunny conditions, the same cannot be said for other parts, where showers and some thunderstorms will develop during the afternoon. 

Warnings are in place across parts of the south and southwest, eastern and central England.

The Met Office forecast for Oxfordshire:

Low-pressure Wednesday and Thursday

On Wednesday, an area of low pressure will approach the UK from the east, bringing heavy and, in places, prolonged rainfall. The precise track of the low pressure will determine how far west across the UK the heavy rain will reach.

Chief Meteorologist, Andy Page, said: “The area of low pressure developing in the southern North Sea will push a band of heavy rain north and west across the UK.

“Areas exposed to the strengthening northerly winds are most likely to see the highest rainfall amounts, though exact details regarding the track of the low and thus where we might see the highest rainfall totals remains uncertain. Warnings are likely to be updated as more details emerge, and it is important therefore, that people to keep an eye on the forecast.”

It’s thought that many places could see 30-40 mm of rain, while a few areas may receive 60-80 mm. There is also a small chance that a few upland areas could see much higher totals, in the order of 150 mm.
