The Met Office says the heavy rain may lead to some flooding.

It says flooding of a few homes and businesses is likely, and bus and train services will probably be affected, with journey times taking longer.

Spray and flooding on roads will probably make journey times longer and interruption to power supplies and other services is likely.
