The yellow weather warning meanwhile has been issued as heavy rain is expected with the Met Office confirming that “flooding of a few homes and businesses is possible”.

The forecaster added that bus and train services will “probably be affected with journey times taking longer” and that driving conditions could be made harder due to “spray and flooding on roads”.
