The Met Office website says: "An area of persistent rain is expected to move northwards across northeast England during the early hours of Tuesday.

"Outbreaks of heavy rain can be expected at times before rain eases and clears northwards during Tuesday afternoon.

"Rainfall totals of 10-20 mm are likely and 30 mm is possible in a few locations with much of this falling within a period of around 6 hours.

"Due to the ground already being near saturated in these areas this brings an increased risk of surface water flooding."
