The UK will be struck by five days of downpours after the departure of Storm Lorenzo, potentially causing further floods in the country.
Lorenzo should have swept across the UK by tomorrow, however torrential rainfall and strong winds are expected to continue for almost a week.
Two weeks’ worth of rain could hit parts of the UK on Sunday as a band of rain from the Atlantic moves over Britain.
Met Office forecaster Greg Dewhurst told Mirror Online: “Through the weekend and into next week it looks like heavy rain at times and strong winds at times. It stays wet and windy until the end of Wednesday.
“There’s a possibility of rain warnings being issued. Any heavy rain over the coming days is only going to add to the saturated ground in parts of the UK. It could lead to the risk of further floods.”
Mr Dewhurst said a band of rain will sweep in from the Atlantic on Saturday evening and Sunday morning, resulting in heavy showers.
Up to 60mm of rain can be expected in parts of Scotland on Sunday, almost half the 127mm average rainfall for the UK in October.
Showers could bring 40mm of rain to areas of east and south-east England on Sunday.
Brits face a drenching on Monday as well, with 20mm of rain predicted in west England and up to 40mm over sections of Wales.
Storm Lorenzo whipped up frighteningly powerful winds of 165mph as it blasted its way across the north Atlantic.
