Further south, the worst weather of the coming week is expected on Tuesday, the Met Office said.

A band of rain will move across England, covering much of the south. It will also bring heavy rain in South Wales, although the north of England and north Wales are expected to be sunnier.

Once the rain on Tuesday has passed, the rest of the UK should expect a dry end to next week.
