The fishermen brave huge waves as the winds hit Cornwall – and the weathermen warn of even more pouring rain, which will bring a half-time washout
- Incredible pictures from Perranporth in Cornwall yesterday show two fishermen being beaten by high winds
- Heavy rain is expected in most parts of the UK over half the run as millions will dampen their plans
- Tomorrow's maximum temperature of 14 ° C will grace Cardiff, while London will stay at 9 ° C.
Millions of family plans for halfway through this week are likely to be dampened as heavy rains are expected in most parts of the UK – and yellow flood warnings are being issued for parts of Wales and north east England.
With much of the nation settling under various coronavirus restrictions, the choppy fall weather becomes apparent in October, with heavy rain, hail, and high winds widely expected.
Incredible images captured yesterday on the cliffs of Perranporth in Cornwall show two fishermen being hit by huge waves and high winds while sitting precariously on an exposed ledge – heavier rains and winds are expected for the southwest.
Wales and the North East will bear the brunt of the rain. The Met Office is issuing yellow flood warnings in several regions for Thursday and Friday – while Scotland and the far north reach wind speeds of 80 km / h.
The remnants of Hurricane Epsilon are responsible for bringing the miserable conditions to the UK as more rain is expected to fall east on Tuesday and later reach the far northeast of Scotland.

Early in the day there can be sunny stretches in the west and some central parts, with highs of 14 ° C (57 ° F) expected in Cardiff and lows of 9 ° C (48 ° F) projected in London will. However, heavy showers are expected to occur during the day.
The temperature is expected to drop slightly in the middle of the week before warming up for the weekend. Highs of 15 ° C are expected for much of the southeast on Friday. Most showers will persist, however, and very heavy rain is expected on the plateau to the west.
Andy Page, chief meteorologist, said, “Until the end of October we are looking at an unexplained period of typical autumn weather that will dominate the forecast. Every year we expect the remnants of rotting tropical hurricanes to disrupt the conditions as they enter the North Atlantic.
Heavier rains and winds are expected for the southwest – as is the case for much of the country this week
& # 39; The remains of the former Hurricane Epsilon have been incorporated into another deep, low pressure area in southwest Iceland, and although the low center is far from our shores and does not cause any disturbance, the weather fronts that lag behind this system become wind and bring rain to the UK, along with potentially heavy swell.
"However, it is rain rather than wind that will dominate our attention later in the week. A so-called 'warm conveyor" is said to bring a flow of very humid and warm air from the further south of the Atlantic to the UK and trigger heavy rainfall for plateaus to the west Great Britain.
& # 39; We have issued a yellow warning for parts of Wales and North West England for Thursday and Friday as additional rainfall in these areas could have an impact, including flooding.
Wales and the North East will bear the brunt of the rain. The Met Office issues yellow flood warnings in the regions for Thursday and Friday – while Scotland and the far north reach wind speeds of 80 km / h
Across the warning area, accumulations of 30-40 mm of rain can be expected, while isolated areas exposed to the strong southwest winds could see 50-80 mm. We expect the heaviest rainfall to be in the mountains of Wales, where there could be 130mm of rainfall in some areas. & # 39;
Over the weekend, the forecast shows that the remnants of ex-Hurricane Zeta may penetrate the North Atlantic, with the associated moisture being carried away into the Atlantic frontal systems, again bringing the potential for more heavy rain to parts of the UK later this weekend and early next week. However, confidence over this period is relatively low for this aspect of the forecast.
Andy Page added, "We will continue to monitor the situation, issue appropriate warnings and work with partners to advise the public."
