The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for the south east of England, with Brighton and Hove, East Sussex and West Sussex likely to be affected by a washout.

The severe weather warnings will come into effect at 12pm today and remain in place until the end of the day, hampering Britons looking to enjoy a Sunday afternoon.

They expect 10-20mm of rain to fall with some places even reaching 30mm later in the evening. The risk of flooding in these areas is high due to soil saturation from recent downpours.

Forecasters warn that buses and trains are likely to be affected, with longer journey times, while flooding of homes and businesses is possible.

Britons have already had to navigate limited public transport due to yesterday’s rail strikes. Train drivers from 11 companies walked out in a long-running pay line, causing more chaos for the public trying to get around the country.

As the south east battles torrential rain today, windy showers are expected across Northern Ireland and much of Scotland, later spreading to parts of the west.

Strong winds are also expected to batter parts of the UK on what turned into a miserable last Sunday in November.

Tomorrow Britons will again have to battle the rain, especially in the west and south of the UK. Meanwhile, it looks slightly more positive from Tuesday with drier conditions and less brutal winds expected, but there will be some fog and mist causing issues.
