A Met Office spokesperson said: “Another area of rain will cross the UK starting from Friday evening, before it clears to the east during Saturday.

“Some of that rain, especially in southwestern parts of the UK, is likely to be heavy at times, and follows many weeks of above-average rainfall in this area.

“The associated weather system should clear to the east during Saturday afternoon, with more showery conditions following.”

Up to 15mm is expected, with areas near southern coasts and over high ground seeing 20 to 30mm.

The warning is in place 9pm Friday to 3pm Saturday.
