UK weather: Travel warning as heavy rain smashes Britain amid flooding fears as temperatures drop after 'Indian Summer' | The Sun

A TRAVEL warning is in place today amid flooding fears as heavy rain is set to smash the UK.

The Met Office have issued a yellow weather warning for rain, covering the entirety of Northern Ireland.

The alert warns of "spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer" and of bus and train services being affected.

The warning also suggests that flooding of some homes and businesses is "likely".

The rest of the UK is not covered by any weather warning, but rain is expected in western areas.

The Met's forecasters predict that rain will sweep across Northern Ireland, western Scotland and the South West into this evening.

Rain or showers are expected to hit most of the country tonight.

Meanwhile, the forecast is said to be "unsettled" into the second half of the week.

It comes as temperatures are set to drop, ending the 'Indian Summer' that Brits have enjoyed in recent weeks.

An Indian Summer is when a period of unusual warmth lasts late into the year following a brief cold snap.
