The UK has been told to brace itself for a weekend washout just days after Storm Ciaran brought floods across the country.
A yellow weather warning has been confirmed by the Met Office for Saturday (November 4), as large parts of south east England are told 'frequent heavy showers' are on the way. Flooding and travel disruptions were deemed 'likely'.
Similar alerts are already in place in north-western areas of Scotland today, though those warnings end at 6pm. A new notice will last from 3pm to midnight and covers the south east of England.

Forecasters now predict "frequent heavy showers, along with gusty winds, are likely to cause travel disruption and flooding". It comes after three days of manic weather up and down the UK thanks to Storm Ciaran.
Met Office statements have since warned of delays to journeys on buses and trains, as well as spray and flooding on certain roads. A statement read: "Heavy rain or showers falling on saturated ground may cause some disruption, particularly to travel.
"A spell of heavy rain early in the day clears northwards but is followed by fairly frequent heavy and blustery showers." The weather warning was deemed to hold a likely but low impact, The Sun reported.
London and South East England, including Kent, the Isle of Wight, Greater London and Surrey, are all expected to be hit by the yellow rain warning. Parts of South West England, including Devon, Dorset and Wiltshire, will also need to brace themselves for potential delays and weather trouble.
Storm Ciaran – Britain's biggest November storm in 69 years – had left millions with strange-tasting cups of tea. MetDesk confirmed there was a reason behind the 'rubbish' cups of tea yesterday.
The storm can be blamed for that, with the Daily Star confirming the 'air pressure' troubles yesterday were behind the lack of boiling water. Metdesk added: "Air pressure was so low the boiling point of water was nearly 2C below the normal 100C in southern Britain."
Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: "Your tea might not have tasted so good today as the boiling point of water was reduced. It explains why some suggest tea never tastes so good in a plane. The reduced pressure lowers the boiling point, with water turning from liquid to gas more quickly."
