Further spells of rain are likely to affect Preston between the hours of 12.15am and 6pm on Tuesday.

The chief forecaster for the Met Office said: “Rainfall totals of 20 to 40 mm are likely quite widely – this falling during a relatively short period of Tuesday morning across Scotland and bringing a risk of surface water flooding.

“Similar amounts of rain are likely across Wales and northwest England where locally 60-80 mm is possible over prone hilly areas, so some localised flooding is likely across sensitive areas.”

The localised issues are more likely in areas still vulnerable following recent floods.
