Britain braced for another wet day as Met Office issues yellow warning for rain

Britain is braced for another wet and windy day as the Met Office issued a yellow warning for rain.

It follows days of unsettled weather, with strong winds and heavy showers around the country.

Forecasters have warned the end of the month will continue to follow a similar pattern, with more rain and winds expected.

A Met Office forecaster said: “It’s going to be a wet and windy end to the weekend, with more rain to come on Sunday.

“Perhaps there will be a few brighter spells but also some thundery showers.”

Strong winds will hit Britain today

On Sunday morning, showers could hit Britain, including a heavy band of rain across south-eastern England.

The forecaster said: “It will create some tricky travelling conditions, there will be a lot of water around on the road.”

Elsewhere, there will be some brighter spells but rain will then spread to other parts of the country too.

Some of the showers could be thundery, particularly across Wales, South West and southern England, the Met Office said.

The meteorologist added: “It is also going to be windy on Sunday afternoon, particularly across the English Channels, so southern coast could see gales for a time.”

Lighter winds are expected in the North of England and Scotland.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for rain in the south of England on Sunday.

It reads: “A spell of heavy rain is expected on Sunday morning and may result in some flooding of roads and a few propertis.”

While the warning is in place, spray and flooding on roads are expected and they could probably make journey times longer.

Flooding of a few homes and businesses is likely, the Met Office said.

Bus and train services could be affected too, with journeys taking longer than usual.

In case of a flood, it is important to be ready and react quickly.

The Environment Agency have some guidelines to help those who live in a flood risk area deal with any emergency.

They include using a postcode checker to evaluate your risk and looking out for  flood warnings.

Residents are also encouraged to prepare a bag that includes medicines and insurance documents in case they need to leave their house.

In case of immediate danger, the Environment Agency urges people to call 999.

Temperatures remain mild during this period and slightly above average for this time of the year.

Next week is also going to be unsettled, with more winds and rain to come, the Met Office said.
