The Met Office has issued a yellow weather for heavy rain across some part of the UK, meaning there is a small chance of flooding.

The warning is in place from 6am today until midnight on Friday and some parts of the UK are included in the warning, including Cumbria.

Met Office forecasters predict that up to 180mm of rain could fall across parts of the Lake District.

Thankfully, Lancashire has been removed from the yellow weather warning, but heavy rain is still in the cards for the county.



Here is the Met Office weather forecast in Blackburn with Darwen, including when the heavy rain is set to end in the county:


Don’t forget your umbrella because rain is forecast all day. It will be turning heavier between 4pm-5pm.

It will also be windy with 39mph winds forecast towards the evening.

However, it will be relatively mild with temperatures reaching highs of 15°c.


Thursday is forecast to bring the worst weather of the week with rain all day and heavy rain forecast from 1pm.

The morning’s light rain will also be accompanied by 38mph winds.


After a morning of heavy rain, the people of Blackburn might see some sunshine between 10am and 4pm – but it’s predicted to be accompanied by light rain so keep an eye out for rainbows.

Cloudy skies are predicted from seven o’clock.

Temperatures are expected to reach highs of 13°c.


The start of the weekend is drier than previous days – but there is 50-60 per chance of rain between 10am-4pm.

It’s expected to feel fresher today with temperatures only reaching 13°c.

It’s also set to be windy, with wind gusts of up to 25mph in the forecast.


It remains unsettled at the end of the working week with further outbreaks of rain which turn heavier at midday.

A mixture of light and heavy rain is forecast from 9am onwards.

It’s also expected to be gusty, with 21mph winds making it feel more three degrees colder than it actually is.

According to the Met Office, the rainy conditions aren't set to end until Tuesday (2 November) when only cloudy skies are in the forecast.
