Weather warning: Yorkshire told to expect heavy rain and strong winds

The Met office has issued a yellow weather warning for Shropshire and Mid Wales up until 7am tomorrow morning.

The strong winds will be accompanied by heavy rain with many places seeing between 25mm and 50mm.

Many places within the warning area will see up to 2in (5cm) of rain, with around 4in (10cm) possible over higher ground.

"Outbreaks of rain, some of it heavy, will accompany the strong winds and will add to the hard driving conditions". Snow warning is in place from 03:00 Thursday 23rd to 13:00 Thursday 23rd.

Heavy and persistent rain is expected across parts of northwest Wales, northern England and southern Scotland on Wednesday before gradually easing during Wednesday night. The Met Office warning says coastal gusts could reach 70mph.

The warning covers most of the country, including all of Hampshire.

Motorists have been warned to face disruption with large parts of Scotland on alert for snow while heavy rain and strong winds lash much of the rest of the UK.

Commuters and motorists are advised that journey times could be affected.

"2-5 cm (0.7in - 1.9in) of snow is likely for many parts with 10-20 cm (3.9in - 7.8in) possible in places, mainly over higher ground".
