Met Office warns of severe rain and possible flooding for parts of UK

The UK will be battered by heavy showers today after a weather warning was issued for parts of the country.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for rain along with cautions for potential flooding to homes and businesses.

Heavy rain is expected between 5am and 9pm across much of West, South and parts of Mid Wales, with strong winds and gusts of up to 65mph expected to affect the Welsh coast.

The worst of the weather is expected to have cleared by mid-afternoon but further east the worst conditions are likely to be during the afternoon and early evening.


A message on the Met Office website said: "Another spell of wet and windy weather is expected on Tuesday when rain will be heavy at times and, given recent wet weather, likely lead to impacts in a few places.

"Over most of Wales, Devon and Cornwall the worst of the weather will have cleared by mid-afternoon whilst further east the worst conditions are likely to be during the afternoon and early evening.



"This wet weather, meanwhile, will be accompanied by windy conditions with gusts in exposed coastal locations around 50-65mph which means that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities may be affected by spray and/or large waves.

"Inland, gusts will be lower and mainly peak at 40-50mph."
Natural Resources Wales has also issued 16 "low risk" flood warnings for Tuesday in West, South and Mid Wales.
