A yellow 'danger to life' weather warning is in place from 4am to 10pm on Tuesday.

The warning says homes and businesses "could be flooded", causing damage to some buildings.

There is also a possibility of fast flowing or deep floodwater, which could cause a "danger to life" and "some communities may be cut off by flooded roads".

We could see quite a lot of rain falling in a short period of time.

The warning continues: "Delays or cancellations to train and bus services are possible.

"Spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures. Possible power cuts and loss of other services to some homes and businesses."

Met Office meteorologist Mark Wilson added to the Mirror: "It's going to be a very unsettled day across the UK with wind, hail, thunder and lighting as well as heavy rain.

"We could see quite a lot of rain falling in a short period of time. It is really worth staying in touch with the forecast.

"Places like London and the south-east will see the heaviest rain (in the morning), but by the evening rush hour it will likely be seen in the north-east of England, as the front is moving northward."

Meanwhile, the Huffington Post reports a month's worth of rain could fall over today and tomorrow.

The average rainfall for September is 80-100mm.
