There is a risk of flooding as heavy rain hits in parts of Lancashire, with the Met Office issuing a yellow weather warning. The alert will be in force from 12.15am until 10pm on Sunday.

A top temperature of 27.4C was recorded in the village of Valley, in Anglesey, north Wales, the Met Office said.

"The heaviest rainfall is likely to be during the morning".

The warning applies to all of Northern Ireland.

. Heavy and thundery rain spreading northeast across northern England and Scotland through late morning and into the afternoon, but further south brighter with showers, perhaps heavy with thunder, affecting mostly SW England and Wales, but a few showers spreading across southern England too.

The dry and sunny weather of the last few days is set to come to an end tomorrow with heavy rain on the forecast. "Some of these weather systems are the remnants of hurricane Humberto".

Weather warnings have been issued for an area stretching from London and the South East to the South West, southern Wales and Herefordshire, with heavy downpours bringing as much as three inches of rain in nine hours.

"Into next week it's going to be quite unsettled".

Given the rain is more likely to fall in the morning, Tuesday's commute could be impacted for those in the warning area. "The outlook into the start of October does look to stay largely changeable".
