The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for rain in Lancashire.


Further spells of heavy rain are likely to affect many parts of Lancashire with a warning of the risk of further localised flooding and potential impacts on travel.

The chief forecaster states: “Another area of low pressure is expected to move quickly east across the Atlantic later in the week, bringing a spell of very windy weather to all parts of the UK, whilst rain will be persistent and heavy over west facing hills.

“Rainfall totals of 20-40 mm are expected fairly widely within the yellow area with as much as 80 mm possible over some high ground exposed to the southwest in western Scotland, northern England and Wales.”

The weather warning follows a similar forecast for Tuesday (January 26) morning where rainfall may reach up to 100mm. Read more here.
