Met Office issue Yellow Weather Warning for rain

The warning was issued this morning, Monday June 13 and is currently forecast to remain in place until Wednesday June 15.

Over the coming days the East Midlands and East of England is forecast to have scattered heavy thundery showers which will once again lead to slow-moving downpours across the warning area. Some parts will inevitably miss most, or all, of the heavier rain.

The Met Office is warning people to be aware of possible localised flooding and disruption to travel.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: “Low cloud will slowly break allowing temperatures to rise, triggering some heavy and slow-moving downpours. 15-25 mm could fall within an hour in scattered locations, bringing the risk of flooding, especially if across urban areas.”
