The first floods of the autumn may be on their way to York as forecasters warn us to be braced for a wet and windy start to the week.
Fortunately any flooding is at the lower end of the scale, restricted to riverside paths. No properties are at risk.
After a wet weekend, Accuweather is predicting 5½ hours and 8mm of rain on Monday in York (November 9).
Rainfall could be worse elsewhere in Yorkshire leading to rivers rising.
The Met Office states:
As a result the Environmental Agency issued a flood alert for these areas:
It stated: “River levels have started to respond to this rainfall and are rising slowly. The current level at York is 2.10m or 6 feet 11 inches. Further rainfall is expected on Sunday.”
It’s also likely to feel breezy. The Met Office has issued a gale warning for the whole of Yorkshire, saying:
Gusts of 50-60 mph are likely.
