The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for Wiltshire as heavy rain is expected to fall.

The warning has been issued for Monday, December 4 and covers Wiltshire and large parts of the South West.

It has been put in place from midnight until 6pm and was issued at 10.41am on Sunday.

Heavy rain is expected to hit the county for the majority of Monday.

The day starts with a 95 per cent chance of heavy rain until 4am. This is expected to be lighter for a time before heavier rain sets in for the rest of the day and into the evening.

This is what the Met Office is warning the public to expect:

  • Flooding of a few homes and businesses is possible.

  • Spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer.

  • Bus and train services probably affected with journey times taking longer.

The warning comes after the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for ice from the start of the day on December 3.
