Met Office issues yellow weather warning for heavy rain across Milton Keynes

    The Met Office has today (22/08) put in place a yellow weather warning for heavy rain across many parts of the UK.

    The warning is in force until at least 9:00am later this morning. In a short statement, a spokesperson for the Met Office said: "Heavy rain may cause flooding and disruption in a few places on Sunday morning.

    "Whilst many places will miss the worst, some areas of heavy rain and a few thunderstorms will occur during Saturday night and persist into the first part of Sunday morning.

    "20 to 40 mm of rain could fall in 1-3 hours in a few places, leading to some flooding and disruption. Rain and showers will ease from the west by mid-morning."

    The Met Office believes that it is likely there could be disruption to travel during this period. 

    The Met Office has warned locals that:

    • Flooding of a few homes and businesses is likely
    • Bus and train services will probably be affected with journey times taking longer
    • Spray and flooding on roads will probably make journey times longer
