A yellow weather warning has been issued for heavy rain across Britain as forecasters warn of further flooding.

London and southern England have been urged to brace for scattered showers which are expected to become more frequent and heavier.

The warning is in force from today at 6pm until 10am tomorrow, Wednesday, October 25.

The Met Office said Britons in the affected areas should expect road closures and difficult driving conditions due to the flooding.

This could impact public transport, with a “slight chance” of delays or cancellations to train and bus services.

“Flooding of a few homes and businesses is likely,” said the weather service.

The Met Office said: “Scattered showers will become more frequent and increasingly organised into a longer spell of rain through Tuesday evening before gradually clearing eastward during Wednesday morning.

“15-25 mm of rain is expected fairly widely but there is a chance that 50-60 mm could fall in a few places; these higher accumulations more likely across east Hampshire, Sussex, Surrey and west Kent.”
