These follow a Yellow Weather Warning for Storm Isha which is in place today (Monday, January 22) after a blustery night last night in which a tree fell down in Gristhorpe Road in Selly Oak and trains and flights were disrupted.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Steve Willington, said: “Although this system will be a step down relative to Storm Isha, with the damage and clean up still underway, we could potentially see more impacts from Storm Jocelyn.

“Outbreaks of heavy rain on Tuesday could bring rainfall accumulations of 15 to 20 mm quite widely with 40 to 50 mm over higher ground in southwest Scotland, the Scottish Highlands and parts of northwest England.”
