The Met Office has said that the UK will have five days of rain starting from Sunday and a yellow warning has been issued for parts of the South West, which includes Portsmouth, Plymouth, Brighton and Bath.

The Met Office has issued the warnings from 2pm on Sundays until 7am on Monday and there will be more rain lasting until Thursday.

Forecasters said, “Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

“There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds.”

A Met Office forecaster said, “We are looking at some heavy bands of rain and showers across southern parts of the UK over the next 24 hours or so but dry and brighter further north.

“The best of the sunshine across northwestern areas. The reason for this is high pressure is in charge across northwestern parts of the UK, but low pressure to the south bringing bands of heavy rain.

“Met Office warnings are in place over the next 24 hours, some hefty downpours are possible.”

There could be “some localised flooding” due to “some real heavy downpours developing,” the Met Office warns.

From Tuesday to Thursday the Met Office said it will be “rather cloudy across the south with showers or longer spells of rain, and heavy with a risk of thunderstorms in places.”

However in the north of the UK it will be “largely dry with warm sunny spells.”
