The Met Office is warning of flooding and transport disruption across large swathes of the UK on Tuesday. Areas across the country saw as much as 35mm of rainfall overnight.

But from Wednesday we can expect warm and sunny weather, followed by dry and cloudy days later on in the week and into the weekend.

The warning is in place until midnight tonight. 

The rain, accompanied with strengthening winds, “will move north and eastwards across the area early on Tuesday, becoming slow-moving over parts of northeast England and, later, also eastern England.

15-30 mm of rain is expected to fall quite widely. Over eastern and northeastern England, 40-50 mm of rain is likely to fall in some parts with 50-75 mm also possible in a few spots,” according to the Met Office.
