Large parts of northern England are facing a yellow weather warning for rain until Tuesday morning.

The Met Office alert is in place from midday on Monday until 5am on Tuesday – with people being told to be prepared for flooding and disruption to bus and train services.

Up to two inches of rain is expected to fall.

On Wednesday – between 7am and 7pm – there is also a yellow warning in place for wind in the far north of Scotland.

The Met Office said there is a slight chance of damage to buildings and of power cuts.

The latest extreme weather comes after a village in Scotland provisionally set the UK record for temperature in January after hitting 19.6C.

The temperature in Kinlochewe in the north-west Highlands recorded the temperature on Sunday, rising above the previous record of villages Inchmarlo and Aboyne in Aberdeenshire which hit 18.3C in 2003 while Aber, Ceredigion, reached the same level in both 1958 and 1971.

The temperature, if confirmed, would also be the record for a winter’s day in Scotland.
