The warning, issued yesterday evening, was for the North of England and will remain until at least 10am today. After days of bad weather putting a dampener on the summer, the Met Office say more rain could lead to flooding and further travel disruption during rush hour. The yellow warning covers all of Manchester, Liverpool and Blackpool.
Met Office, meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: “It’s going to be quite fresh first thing.
“Showers will develop across England with hit and miss sharp downpours.”
The south west of England is expected to also be hit by heavy showers and thick cloud.
Moreover, there could be more than a month’s worth of rain that could fall in just two or three hours claim the Met Office.
Heavy rains and floods are set to hit the UK
London and the south east will see the best of the weather as summery conditions sweep in with 20C (68F) sunshine by mid-afternoon.
Mr McGivern said: “Whilst we begin the day with wet weather, throughout the day increasingly sunny skies and dry weather will break out by the afternoon.
“All in all an unsettling few days coming up.”
The hopes of a warmer summer may disappear as freak storms and tornados are set to inflict chaos across Britain.
More yellow weather warnings were issued by the Tornado and Storm Research Organisation for large parts of the country ahead of the freak summer storms.
This follows after weekend saw torrential rain and hefty winds batter the UK.
After July’s scorching heatwave there are still more downpours on the way for the UK.
Heavy rain will affect England and Wales on Wednesday but will move towards the east, leaving dismal conditions.
