Showers will bombard the UK and become more persistent as we move through the day on Remembrance Sunday. Meteorologist Greg Dewhurst said: “The Met Office has a yellow weather warning in force.” He warned Britons to take an umbrella to any Armistice Day services, “as there could be some heavy showers around.”
Mr Dewhurst said: “The showers across southern and western areas will trundle their way north-eastwards through the day, moving quite quickly.”
The far south and west of the country will experience strong winds, increasing in strength as the day progresses.
As we move into the evening on Armistice Day, temperatures will increase but there will still be heavy rain.
In the later hours of the day we will see more showers forming which will be heavy at times.
The Met Office warned flooding of homes and business is likely in some areas.
They also said people commuting to services in honour of fallen servicemen and women could be affected with journeys taking longer than usual.
BBC weather forecaster Chris Fawkes said people should “expect downpours to become quite widespread across Scotland”.
He said: “There will be more rain across southern parts of England, that is going to be heavy and thundery at times.
“There will be gusty winds in the south with temperatures staying mild.”
Mr Dewhurst said the UK will start to see sunny spells as we move into the working work.
But the scattered showers will remain persistent.
He added: “The brolly will need to be at hand.”
