Met Office issues a yellow weather warning for rainfall across the region tomorrow (Tuesday).
HEAVY rainfall is due to fall across North Devon tomorrow (Tuesday) with the Met Office issuing a yellow weather warning.
The warning runs from 8am until 11.59pm with rainfall predicted to be ‘persistent and often heavy’.
A chief forecaster for the Met Office said: “A developing small-scale low pressure system is expected to run north-eastwards across southern and central areas of England during Tuesday and Tuesday night.
“An arc of heavy and persistent rain is expected to form on the northern and western flank, with anything from 20 to 60 mm falling in the space of six to 12 hours.
“The ground is relatively dry, and this will help guard against too many impacts, but road travel is likely to be inconvenienced locally.
“Strong winds may also combine with the heavy rainfall in places.”
