Met Office issued weather warning across the region today (Sat) and tomorrow.

OUTBREAKS of heavy rain are forecast today (Sat) and tomorrow as the Met Office issues a yellow weather warning across North Devon.

This morning a spell of heavy rain is expected to fall across the region with 20-30mm of rain falling in a six-hour period.

The rainfall is expected to move east across the UK on Sunday and widespread accumulations of 10-15mm are expected.

Following the recent wet weather and tidal surge around the region yesterday (Fri) and Thursday, there is an increased risk of flooding.

The warnings are currently in place from midnight until 2pm today and from 9am until midnight tomorrow.

A chief forecaster for the Met Office said: “Another spell of wet and windy weather will affect the British Isles on Sunday as a new, large deep depression develops over the Atlantic Ocean.

“The associated frontal system is then expected to move eastwards across Britain, perhaps not clearing the far east and southeast until Monday morning.”
