EXPIRED: Weather Warning: Heavy Rain
Further rain, heavy at times is expected to spread quickly northeastwards across southwest and parts of southern England on Wednesday. Rainfall totals are expected to be widely 10-20 mm, but as much as 30-40 mm over some south facing coasts and hills. South or southwesterly gales with gusts 50-60 mph may also accompany the rain.
With ground already saturated over much of this area, the public should be aware of the risk of further localised flooding.
Another active Atlantic frontal system and deepening area of low pressure is expected to push northeastwards across the UK on Wednesday, followed by active troughs. A combination of strong winds and moist air will give locally significant rainfall accumulations especially over south-facing coasts and hills. The more persistent rain should clear eastwards later on Wednesday and overnight, but heavy showers will follow on.
