The Met Office said, “Heavy rain beginning on Friday is expected to continue into Saturday which may bring transport disruption and flooding.

“Rain is expected to arrive across parts of the UK during Friday and become heavy and persistent, this is especially true for high ground exposed to the strong southwesterly wind. 

“This rain is expected to continue falling in similar areas for around 24 hours. As such during this period 40-60 mm of rain is likely, with perhaps as much as 100 mm over higher ground.”
