Reading Time: < 1 minute

Sky News reports that some parts of the UK could see a month’s worth of rainfall in a single day, forecasters have warned.

The Met Office has issued four yellow severe weather warnings for rain and affected areas could see local flooding and disruption to transport.

Weather warnings are in force for the whole of Tuesday up to midday on Thursday for northeastern England down to the Wash and as far west as the West Midlands.

Wet and windy conditions are set to last well into the week, with cooler-than-average temperatures for this time of year.

Many places will see 20mm of rainfall, while isolated spots could see between 40mm and 60mm.

The average monthly rainfall for the South East in June is about 50mm.

Northern Ireland and Scotland will enjoy the best of the weather, staying mostly dry with sunny spells.
