Met Office weather warnings have emerged across the country this morning, as the agency placed alerts due to heavy incoming rain. They advise an incoming band of rain could endanger people in the southwest and northeast, with inches of surface water. As such, flooding risks remain high, and forecasters have also issued a “danger to life” warning.
The latest forecast states up to 120mm (4.7 inches) of rain could fall over two amber warning areas.
Updated warnings include the southwest Midlands and southern England, and parts of Fife and Moray in Scotland.
The first warning reads: “A band of rain will become slow moving and heavy across Wales, the West Midlands and into western parts of southern England.
“This is likely to bring flooding and some disruption to travel.”
