Risks:

Wind: Risk of pedestrians finding it difficult to walk and if the gusts reach over 40 mph being blown over.  For drivers, the wind gusts will make it difficult to drive and you need to take special care on bridges.   Some bridges may close.

Rain: There is also a risk of flooding because of the persistent rain and rivers and streams overflowing.   Roads will have flood water too in all the usual spots. There may be some surprise showers before midnight tonight and overnight.

That is it from me and do have a terrific Tuesday despite the terrible weather.   Surprisingly, the birds have gone into lockdown!  I had a quick question from the birds, how do humans manage to carry around 4 or 5 umbrellas?  I replied they don’t, the number of umbrellas in my forecast is to indicate the severity of the rain!
