Met Office issues urgent weather warning as Britain braces for Storm Elin

The Met Office has issued an urgent rain warning for parts of the country as another named storm is set to strike just days after Storm Debi wrecked havoc.

The yellow rain warning is in place from 9:46am Wednesday morning until midday and warns residents of travel chaos as torrential downpours are expected to cause local disruption. 

Areas affected include southwest Scotland, Lothian Borders and Strathclyde.

The weather service said: “Rain will turn heavy at times through the morning before easing towards midday.

“Some places in the warning area will see 20 mm in 1-2 hours which given the recent rainfall, may bring some localised flooding.”
