The Met Office has issued a weather warning for rain for today (Saturday).

The yellow “be aware” warning for Yorkshire and the Humber is valid until 11.45pm.

A Met Office spokesperson said: “An area of rain is expected to push north across the UK through Saturday. The rain will be persistent and sometimes heavy, especially across western areas at first, and later over northern areas. There remains some uncertainty in the eastward extent across England and Wales, and then, during the afternoon and evening, how far the rain will push into Scotland and Northern Ireland. The most persistent rain will clear Wales early in the day.

“The public are advised to be aware of the risk of disruption to travel and outdoor activities due to localised surface water flooding.”
