The yellow 'Be Aware' warning begins at 6am, and lasts for the rest of the day.

The UK Met Office said that the spell of wet and very windy weather will cross the UK from the west on Sunday, with heavy rain and gales likely to affect most areas for a time.

Rainfall accumulations of 15 to 25mm are expected quite widely with 35mm or more locally.

"The public should be aware of the possible disruption to transport and the continuing risk of flooding in prone areas," the Met Office warned.

Meanwhile, 18 yellow alert rain warnings had been issued right across the UK.
