Met Office forecast shows exactly when torrential rain will hit your area today

Brits will be drenched in severe downpours today, with millions likely affected by the rainstorms.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning, which covers a large area of England, fully encompassing an enormous section stretching north to south.

The only places that will remain unaffected appear to be the southwest, Wales, and the very furthest areas in the west and east of England.

The alert, which begins at midday and is in place until midnight, will bring heavy showers to lash Brits and it may lead to flooding.

Public transport is likely to be disrupted and roads could shut as a large amount of rain is expected to fall in a short space of time.

The weather agency also warns there is a slight chance of power cuts and damages to homes and businesses affected by flooding.

To find out when the storm is set to arrive in various parts of the UK, read below.

When is the rain going to hit where you are?


Newcastle and Sunderland, fully covered in the yellow warning, will start the day with overcast skies. The rain will begin as early as 9am with the heavy showers falling from 10 am until 1pm.

In the afternoon, the sun will attempt to break cover but there is still a 30% chance of rain falling with this increasing to 40% later on in the evening. It's likely the rain will stop around 6pm onwards.

Expecting fewer downpours than further north, light showers will continue throughout the afternoon with outbreaks of sunshine. Dry skies, with more clouds, are expected from 6pm.

Kent won't be able to escape the weather warning, with the storm approaching from midday and lingering until 8pm tonight. Brief spots of sunshine will peek through in the afternoon, however, light showers may combat the effects.

Even down to the coast of Brighton will experience showers, with a wet start, cloudy skies for the morning before rain hits in the afternoon.


Only the furthest parts of the east of England are set to escape the downpours, such as Norwich.

Essex will have a dry and grey morning before the rainfall begins at 3pm and remains for several hours until late in the evening, most likely 9pm.

For other areas in the east, there could be small breaks of sunshine in between the rain but its predicted showers will continue throughout the day.
