Weather warning for rain in Kent issued by Met Office

If you were planning to take part in an outdoor activity on Thursday think again, as Kent is predicted to experience heavy rain.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning across most of the east of England.

Thursday will be a gloomy, cloudy day and its is suggested from midnight until 11.45pm there will be periods of rain.

Hill snow was initially predicted but on Tuesday that part of the warning was lifted.

The weather forecasting service has warned drivers that there may be spraying and flooding on the road, increasing journey times.

Those who use public transport may also face delays, so leaving early is advised.

The prolonged downpour means the flooding of a few homes and businesses is "likely".

Yellow weather warnings are the least severe, after amber and red.

The rain is unlikely to cause a huge amount of damage, but it would be sensible to wear a waterproof jacket and pack an umbrella.

After the last Kent weather warning, on Friday, November 1, firework displays and events across the county were cancelled.
