This means flooding is possible.

110 flood warnings have been removed in the previous 24 hours.

Parts of the UK have been hit with a month’s worth of rainfall in one day.

The River Don hit its highest recorded level at just over 6.3m (20.7ft).

Met Office meteorologist Alex Deakin explained the latest forecast to Saturday morning: “A frosty start to what will be a pretty chilly weekend some places, will see a fair bit of sunshine but there’s also some rain particularly in the West on Saturday morning and some dense patches of fog around.”

There will be persistent rain across the east of Northern Ireland and snow could fall on the hills of north Wales.

It will start wet in Wales and east England and “creep into the Midlands”
though east England and Scotland will stay dry.

Remembrance Sunday will be dry for most and bright but also cold.
