Warnings of heavy rain and strong winds across East Sussex have been issued for tomorrow (Tuesday February 11), Wednesday, Thursday and Friday by Met Office forecasters.

In the early hours of tomorrow until 1pm they are expecting spells of rain, heavy at times, and accompanied by strong winds and coastal gales.

The rain should clear eastwards by around the middle of Tuesday.

A ‘vigorous area of low pressure’ is expected to move northeastwards across the UK later on Wednesday, clearing eastwards early on Thursday.

This is likely to be accompanied by a swathe of gales across many parts of England and Wales which may be severe in places.

Forecasters said: “The public should be prepared for the the risk of disruption to transport and possibly also power supplies.”

After a brighter interlude on Thursday, with some wintry showers, further spells of persistent and heavy rain are expected to spread northwards during Friday afternoon and evening, affecting many parts of England and Wales.

Following repeated heavy rainfall events earlier in the week, the public should be aware of the potential for further flooding in places, forecasters said.
