The Met Office has issued a weather warning for Preston and Lancashire of gale force winds and heavy rain.

Gusts of up to 55mph will reach iland during Saturday and Sunday to round off a miserable month of weather.

Heavy rain is then expected throughout Monday and Tuesday with up to 80mm expected to fall in some areas.

The weather warning states there is likely to be travel disruption and there is the risk of flooding in some areas.

The chief forecaster states: “Following the wet November the ground is satured and rivers are expected to rise in response to the rainfall with a low risk of flooding.

“Whilst lowland areas are expected to see much smaller rainfall amounts as the water moves downstream through the river network further areas of flooding are possible.”
