THE Met Office has updated a warning about rain to include the whole of West Yorkshire.

The yellow warning started at 5pm yesterday - but at that time did not cover the whole region.

It has now been updated to include all of West Yorkshire. 

The warning is in place until 9pm today.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "Following recent wet weather, a further spell of rain, heavy in places, will move north-eastwards on Tuesday.

"10 to 20mm of rain will fall fairly widely, with a few places seeing 30 to 40 mm - this on top of the overnight rainfall.

"The worst of the rain should clear southwestern areas of England and south Wales by around the middle of Tuesday but could last into the evening across the northeast of the warning area.

"Strong winds will affect parts of the area."

The Met Office on what to expect

  • Flooding of a few homes and businesses is possible

  • Spray and flooding on roads will probably make journey times longer

  • Bus and train services will probably be affected with journey times taking longer

  • Some interruption to power supplies and other services is possible
