The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for rain across our region this weekend.

The warning comes into force at 3am on Saturday and remains in place until 6pm on Sunday.

Currently, the warning covers the vast majority of England, Wales and parts of Scotland.

The Met Office said that it is expecting heavy rain which could bring some flooding and transport disruption.

It said that “spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures” and that “where flooding occurs, there is a slight chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services.”
