The south of the UK is one of the most wet areas of the country and many areas are brimming with water, with many areas of south-west England brimming over at the moment.
However, in the north of England the weather is getting a little bit colder.
A cold front is expected to develop over the north-west of England over the next few days, with cold fronts moving into the UK later in the week.
A dry, dry, wet, wetland climate is not a surprise to anyone who lives in a climate zone where the air is wetter and drier than the UK average.
But a cold front, or even a strong northwesterly wind, could see much of the north change its outlook.
“It’s not going to be a pleasant week in the North,” said Mark Wood, a climate scientist at the University of Sussex.
“We’re going to see a bit of rain in places and some very cold weather.”
There will be some cold fronts over the southern parts of the United Kingdom, particularly into the Midlands and north Wales.
“What’s happening to the UK?
There will be rain, there will be snow, but it will be more moderate and it will not be a particularly severe event.””
The rain is going to come in, it’s going to get colder and colder.
There will be rain, there will be snow, but it will be more moderate and it will not be a particularly severe event.”
What is a storm?
A storm is a combination of wind, rain and hail, and they can have a very significant impact on weather across the UK.
“The first of these is called the jet stream, which is a very powerful wind that moves across the Atlantic and then heads south, and this jet stream is what carries rain and snow across the north and the Midlands,” said Prof Wood.
“Then there’s the low pressure system, which moves north over England, which then heads into the south.”
What happens in a low pressure area is that the air pressure increases, which causes the surface air temperature to drop and then the moisture in the atmosphere drops.
“In this case, that moisture is actually going to move into colder regions and this will lead to snow.”
The jet stream can move quickly over land, and sometimes this can cause floods and snowfalls, which can then cause problems in the UK’s weather.
The cold air will also move over the UK and into the South West, and the dry air will move over to the East Midlands, where the weather will be a little drier.
“We’re seeing a little less wind and rain and a lot of snow on the ground,” said Professor Wood.
How can you survive a stormy day?
“The weather will change and it’s very unpredictable,” said Nick Dickson, the founder of WeatherproofUK.
“It’s always the best thing to be prepared, whether you’re out shopping, or cooking, or driving, you’re going not want to miss out on anything.”
Dr Wood said if you’re a bit more cautious, it is still possible to get through a storm.
“For the most part, you can get through them by being alert, and knowing when to switch off, and when to be back up,” he said.
“But if you get caught in the cold front and then you see a storm coming, or you get stuck in a rain storm, you may need to be more careful than usual.”
If you’re driving in a cold storm, then you need to switch to an engine, and if you can do that, then be back in the car in about 15 minutes, which may take up to 10 minutes.
“What are the best ways to get around during the storm?”
It depends on what you’re doing, but if you are going to do any shopping, if you have a car or even if you just want to go for a walk, it would be a good idea to switch on your phone, because you could potentially lose your signal, so it might be a bad idea to just get up and go out for a few minutes.
“On the other hand, if it’s raining, you might want to take a look around and see if there’s a place you can stay.
If there is, you could go out and get some food or a drink and stay for a bit longer.”
