Met Office issues yellow weather warning for rain in North Devon this weekend.

THE Met Office has issued a weather warning for Friday and Saturday with bands of heavy rain forecast to come in.

The yellow warning is set to last from 8am on Friday until 3am on Saturday.

A chief forecaster for the agency said: “Another very deep area of low pressure will spread heavy rain and strong to gale force winds eastwards across the UK during Friday, before the associated frontal systems clear the southeast of England during the early hours of Saturday.

“Following recent wet weather, the areas highlighted have saturated ground and are particularly sensitive to further heavy rain.”
