Brighton and Hove to be battered by more wind and rain

Posted On 02 Mar 2014 at 1:00 pm

The storms are back with Brighton and Hove forecast to be battered by more wind and rain tonight (Sunday 2 March).

About half an inch or almost 12.5mm of rain is expected to fall in a matter of hours later this evening.

And wind speeds are likely to average about 25 knots at the height of the storm with gusts of alost 40 knots.

There have been concerns about groundwater levels in Patcham and Portslade in recent weeks. Formal flood warnings were lifted about a week ago with unneeded sandbags being collected.

The storm tonight is due to be followed by a spring tide tomorrow (Monday 3 March).
