The Met Office has warned that the flooding of some homes and businesses is possible as a result of the rain. They have also warned of spray and flooding on roads, which can cause delays, as well as delays to bus and train services.

They said: “Frequent heavy showers merging into some longer spells of rain through Sunday evening and overnight. 10-20 mm of rain falling and possibly 30-40 mm in a few places over a 12 hour period.”

Now, the Met Office have warned residents to check if their property is at risk of flooding, and to prepare a flood plan if so. They have also said people should check road conditions and public transport timetables before setting off on a journey.
