Heavy rain has hit Brighton and Hove as the remnants of ex-hurricane Bertha arrived this morning.
The Met Office updated the severe weather rain warning last night to say while the forecast is still uncertain, “the public should be aware of the risk of flooding due to heavy rain as well as strong winds and large waves, particularly on the coasts of southern England.”
It says there is the potential for large waves and 50mm of rain.
And this morning it issued another severe weather warning for wind which covers the city, saying exposed coastal areas could get gusts of up to 60mph.

While Bertha’s not quite the big bruiser she was made out to be, just saw a woman blown off her bike beside a wild sea in #Hove. Take care!
