The weather in Bristol is expected to remain unsettled for the next few days, after multiples storms battered the city.
Three named storms – Dudley, Eunice and Franklin – swept across the country in the last week, ripping up trees, creating powercuts and causing travel chaos. Areas of Bristol city centre had to be cordoned off while the storms raged, with Storm Eunice labelled a ‘red’ danger to life in parts of the UK as four people sadly died.
And the Met Office is predicting that miserable weather will continue to hit the South West over the next few days. Blustery showers are expected to fall this week, while frosty temperatures are also being anticipated.
Meanwhile, weather charts by WXcharts show that Bristol could see up to 2cm of snow falling per hour later this week. But there’s a glimmer of hope for the weekend, when it is thought that conditions will be “drier and brighter”.
Take a look at the Met Office’s full five-day forecast for the South West below.
