Rain warnings are in place on Wednesday, across the East Midlands, East of England, London and South East England, South West England and the West Midlands.

The warning is in place from 3am to 2pm on Wednesday, and the Met Office cautions: “Heavy rain will move north during the early hours of the morning and persist through the peak morning travel period, before clearing northeastwards.”

Rainfall totals of “0.39 to 0.59 inches (10 to 15mm) of rain will fall widely, with as much as 30 to 50 mm in a few locations.

“With much of this falling in a short period, around three to six hours, some surface-water flooding is likely in places, leading to disruption to travel.
