Low pressure is set to bring another unsettled 24 hours across the British Isles with strong winds and very heavy rainfall through the central swathe of Britain, leading to possible flooding.

The north west of England is currently on an Amber Warning where rainfall totals could reach 100mm or more by the end of tomorrow. A repeat performance of the conditions that Wales faced only two weeks ago can't be ruled out.

At the moment there is a band of rain to the north of the UK and another across the south.

These two areas of rain may merge as they pivot around the low pressure currently positioned over the country. In the southwest of England and through the English Channel winds are expected to touch gale force through Friday.

The combination of persistent rain and strong winds will make for another miserable summer's day.

Some travel disruption is likely to be caused as a result of this unsettled period of weather so take extra care on the roads. You may want to allow more time for your travel plans, especially during the morning and evening rush hour as we head into the weekend.

The summer solstice which has just gone by late on Wednesday night has definitely been overshadowed by this developing weather event, which will undoubtedly pose problems for the next stage of the Olympic torch relay in the north west of England.
