The Isle of Wight has been included in a Met Office yellow weather warning for rain on Thursday (14).

The warning comes into force at midnight and lasts all day.

Much of central England is included in the warning, which also says there could be some snow on higher ground in the west.

The Met Office said:

“Periods of rain are expected to become widespread and locally heavy across parts of England and Wales through Thursday.

“Over western areas, some hill snow is possible, with local accumulations of a few cm possible, for example over the higher routes in Wales.

“Rainfall totals of 10-20mm are likely, with some spots potentially seeing totals of 40-60mm.

“Further heavy rain on Thursday may lead to flooding and travel disruption.”
