Jamie Russell from Isle of Wight Met Service told OnTheWight,
“The Isle of Wight is expected to see wind gusts in a narrow band, combined with risk of torrential downpours, in essence, another squall line”
The forecast for today reads:
As the morning goes on, the cloud will increase from the west as a band of heavy and squally rain with the risk of hail moves in.
The timing of the squally rain is a little uncertain, but between midday and 2pm seems like the most likely window at the moment.
What is a squall line?
A squall line is a group of storms arranged in a line, often accompanied by squalls of high wind and heavy rain that tend to pass quickly.
