SOUTH West residents are in for a rainy day tomorrow (Monday, December 4).

A yellow weather warning has been issued for rain, which covers parts of North Somerset, Somerset and Devon.

Until 6pm tomorrow, locals should expect:

  • Flooding of a few homes and businesses;
  • Spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer;
  • Bus and train services probably affected with journey times taking longer.

If you do have to travel in heavy rain, you are urged to leave extra stopping distance from the vehicle in front.
