A total of 178 flood warnings and alerts have been issued across England and Wales

Britons have been warned the UK could face a month of storms as a “conveyor belt” of Atlantic lows look set to drench Britain until December.

The UK is still reeling from the impact of Storm Ciaran, with a number of weather warnings issued by the Met Office in recent days.

England’s Environment Agency put out 140 flood alerts and 34 flood warnings on Sunday.

The alerts and warnings are scattered across England.

However, there are a large number of flood warnings, where flooding is possible, on the south coast.

Natural Resources Wales issued a further four warning and alerts on the other side of the River Severn.

The Welsh warnings cover parts of Dyfed and Powys, with tourist hotspot Tenby facing the most serious alert.

“Flooding is extensive at Kiln Park Caravan and the site has been evacuated,” Natural Resources Wales said.

“Some roads in this area are closed and likely to remain so for several more days, with further disruption in the area possible.

“We advise vehicles not to attempt access. Due to the restriction of the tidal outfall water levels may remain high for several days, and will rise over the period of each high tide.”

Despite yellow and amber warnings being withdrawn, meteorological experts have suggested adverse conditions will remain during the weeks building up to Christmas.

NetWeather said: “It looks like the current low-pressure domination of our weather, with wind and rain at times will continue for the rest of the month.

“Which may bring further flooding after a very wet October and start to November. But there will be a few dry days here and there.”

It added: “Rain looks to return on Wednesday, followed by showers on Thursday.

“Friday could turn drier away from coasts and Saturday could repeat this too, but it does look like unsettled, sometimes wet and windy weather will return at some point next weekend.

“Unsettled and mild conditions look to prevail through the rest of November too, looking at longer range output.”

NetWeather concluded: “What there is fairly good confidence on in the broader picture is for unsettled and mild weather to continue through the rest of the month, dominated by an upper trough in the means close to the west and northwest of Britain and a conveyor of Atlantic lows moving across or close to the UK and Ireland much of the time.”
