Southwest England and South Wales are under a yellow weather warning for rain, effective from 11 am to 11.59 pm on Thursday. The Met Office predicts widespread rainfall of up to 2cm, with hilly regions expecting up to 4cm. This may lead to delays in bus and train services, and drivers may encounter flooding on the roads. A secondary yellow warning for the Leicester area is also in place from 2 pm on Thursday to 3 am on Friday.

The Met Office advises checking the local weather forecast. The Environment Agency urges the public across the area to avoid walking, cycling, or driving through floods during the heavy rain period. Meanwhile, other areas, especially southeast England, can expect bright or sunny spells on Thursday.

Looking ahead to the weekend, drier and brighter conditions are anticipated across the UK, with only a few showers and some rain in the west. Notably, last night marked England’s warmest Valentine’s night on record, with temperatures not dropping below 11.5C on the Isles of Scilly. This surpassed the previous record of 11.1C in Teignmouth, Devon, set in 1914.

On the bright side however, Spring is coming:
