The Met Office has issued a series of weather warnings across the UK with “scattered heavy showers” on the way.

A weather map from the Met Office has shown the areas likely to be impacted by the strong gusts and heavy rain.

The weather map shows a band of rain sweeping across Britain, with he southwest of England and Northern Ireland hit the heaviest.

The Met Office claimed that some parts of the UK could see 40-60mm of rainfall locally with winds up to 70mph locally.

An amber weather warning is in place for Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire from 1pm on Friday afternoon until 11pm Friday evening.

The warning reads: “A spell of heavy rain will affect southwestern parts of Wales during this afternoon and evening, bringing a further 20-40 mm of rain.

“Much of this will fall within 6-9 hours and lead to further flooding.

“Scattered heavy showers will follow from the west overnight.”

A separate yellow weather warning is also in place for rain and wind between 1pm and midnight on Friday.

The warning is in place for Wales, Strathclyde, south west England, London and the south east, Northern Ireland, south west Scotland, Grampian, and Central, Tayside & Fife.

It reads: “A band of heavy rain is expected to move east during Friday with widely 15-25 mm of rain falling and 40-60 mm over higher ground.

“This will be in addition to other spells of heavy rain so far this week affecting similar areas.

“Rain will be accompanied by strong winds with gusts of 50-55 mph possible inland and 60-70 mph around some coasts.”

Met Office’s Alex Deakin said: “As we go through the day, the first area of rain will bring a few showers to parts of the Midlands.

“Though much of eastern England and eastern Scotland will stay dry. Skies will then brighten for a time over Wales and southern England before the main area of rain starts to push in.”

He added: “It will be a fairly miserable afternoon for Northern Ireland, Wales and southwest England as the rain will be heavy here.

“It doesn’t stop there as the rain will continue to spread eastwards…Rains may not reach eastern England by 6 o’clock”.

“As it may take much of the evening before the rain finally moves its way into East Anglia and the far North East of Scotland.

“However most of us will see a spell of wet weather through the second half of Friday.”

Leading bookmakers have slashed odds on this month becoming the wettest November on record to 10-11.

Coral’s John Hill said: “This looks set to be one of the wettest weekends of the year and with more torrential rain forecast for the next couple of weeks, it is now odds-on that this month will end as the wettest on record in the UK.”
