Tonight / Tomorrow:
An area of low pressure, now named as Storm Francis, will develop to the west of the UK tonight, move across Ireland tomorrow morning and then east across northern England and into the North Sea by tomorrow night. This will bring heavy rain and unseasonably strong winds across much of the UK.
Areas of rain, locally heavy, are expected to move northeast across southeast England tonight, gradually clearing to the east tomorrow morning. Showers, isolated heavy, are expected to follow from the west during the day before dying out during the evening.
