Radar and Lightning Maps

Rainfall Radar

The link below shows animated rainfall radar images at 5-minute intervals of Leigh-on-Sea and the rest of Essex over the past 90 minutes.

Different colours indicate how heavy precipitation is that is falling to the ground. For example, areas of yellow and orange show heavy rainfall (or snowfall in winter). Thunderstorms are often indicated by red or pink colours.

Lightning Maps

The link below enables weather observers to track thunderstorms in and around southeast England and the near Continent.

The lightning data is shown on a map in real-time, but depending on server load (especially during severe weather outbreaks), there may be a delay between 3 and 10 seconds before each new strike appears.


Weather In Leigh-on-Sea

Our forecasters update the written short-range and medium-range weather forecasts throughout the day. They include the latest output from the Met Office UKV and ECMWF numerical weather prediction models. These kilometre-scale forecasting models produce significantly improved weather forecasts and pinpoint features such as thunderstorms, fog, and snow.

A graphical weather outlook for the next four days is presented for Leigh-on-Sea and is based upon the latest run of the ECMWF computer model. Updated twice daily, this forecast provides a view of expected daily weather conditions for the Leigh-on-Sea area, including predicted minimum and maximum temperatures.


Leigh-on-Sea Weather History

In 1979, the winter weather was so cold that Leigh-on-Sea enjoyed 10 'ice days' where parts of the sea froze. In the same year, the weather brought snow to the town for five days as late in the year as May. This was not the first time the weather sent late snow to Leigh-on-Sea. In 1908 the town was blanketed in snow on 24th April. The weather has caused the tide to rush into Leigh-on-Sea on more than one occasion. In 1887 the flooding was so bad that an eight-oared boat was rowed up the High Street, and in 1953 the cockle sheds and the railway station were flooded. The terrible weather meant that the only way to get help to Leigh from outside was by rail with three engines linked together so that they could force their way through the flood waters that surrounded the town.


Important: Whilst we provide a comprehensive daily weather forecast service for Essex, we urge visitors to check the Met Office website today for any severe weather warnings and the Environment Agency website for any flood warnings that may affect Leigh-on-Sea and the surrounding areas.
