Wet skies are likely to wreak havoc across southern parts of England and Wales throughout the morning until 9pm.

Amber weather warnings have been issued for parts of South Wales, Devon, Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire.

Later in the day, heavy rain is likely to affect eastern Scotland, which has also been issued with the alert.

The downpour may cause flooding and disruption to travel until 9pm.

Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey said the south and west of England could potentially see thunder on Wednesday.

She told Sky News: “The showers could be locally heavy and there is a chance you will see thunder, mainly in coastal areas to the south and west,” she said.

“In general, any rain that falls today will continue to pour slowly east across the country tomorrow, becoming persistent in the north, with storms in the northeast.

“Sunshine and heavy showers follow later to the south and west.”


Yellow is the least dangerous of the weather warnings – it means “beware”.

This potentially means canceling plans, dealing with travel delays, road and rail closures, power outages and the potential threat to life and property.

The Met Office predicts there could be up to 50mm in localized areas.

This rain will continue to move east throughout the day, which will also be heavy at times.

The North will also see some rain, with the Northeast also being hit by wind and storms.

The UK will continue to be battered by rain and strong winds across all areas for the remainder of the working week.

The northeast is also hit by storms or even “severe storms”, according to the meteorologists.

It is true that the miserable conditions are alleviated in many areas with phases of “drier interludes”.

The announcements come as Britons faced a bumpy start to the working week and fog caused travel chaos for commuters.
