The Queen Elizabeth II bridge across the Thames at the Dartford crossing was closed due to strong winds on Sunday morning.

"Falling onto already wet ground, 20-40mm of rainfall is expected quite widely with 50-60mm possible over higher ground in Cumbria".

Lasting from 6pm today until 6am on Tuesday, 25mm of rain is expected to accumulate as heavy brain rain turns to squally showers.

And although temperatures will be near average for the time of year, it will often feel colder due to the strong winds.
