After a bout of snow and ice you may be thinking the UK could be in for some nice weather.

However, the Met Office has issued a yellow ‘be aware’ warning for heavy rain for Friday (February 1).

On its website it said: “Given the saturated state of the ground and high river levels, the public should be aware that further localised flooding and disruption to travel is possible.

“The rain may also be accompanied by strong winds with potential for gales or severe gales around exposed coasts and over hills.”
