Severe weather warning for London ahead of heavy rain

Postby Community Editor » Tue Jan 19, 2021 12:09 pm

THE Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for heavy rain across the south of England this week, including London. 

Forecasters are warning that heavy rain showers may lead to travel disruption and flooding in places.

The weather warning is in place from midnight on Wednesday until 3am on Thursday. It comes after flooding in the past week which caused disruptions on roads and railways and flooded some homes across the country.
