Heavy rain expected is across north and northwest England on Wednesday. Spray and flooding on roads will probably make journey times longer. Bus and train services will also probably be affected with journey times taking longer. Flooding of a few properties is possible.
Strong winds are expected to move east across England and Wales during Wednesday. The strongest winds will finally ease from the SE of England around dawn on Thursday. Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely whilst outbreaks of rain, occasionally heavy, will add to the difficult travel conditions.
