The Met Office has set a yellow weather warning for most of south west England, Wales, and north England. Meteorologist Aidan McGivern explained that Friday will start with heavy outbreaks of persistent rainfall. He said: “A keen wind will be coming in as well associated with an area of low pressure breezy in the southeast from the word go. But actually some sunshine a lot of dry weather.

“It’s across western parts of England and Wales that we start off with wet weather.”

The rain is expected to bring severe travel disruptions with risks of roads flooding.

The Met Office advises people to expect bus and train services to be affected, with journey times increasing.

It says some homes and businesses might experience flooding.

Mr McGivern said: “Many will see substantial amounts of rainfall, enough to cause disruption particularly given the fact that there may well be some busy travel around early Friday.

“Then later Friday as well as that rainfall will be sticking about for much of the day.”

As the day progresses the rain will find its way east.

Though, as it moves the clouds will gradually disperse and make way for dry spells.
