The Met Office has issued a series of warnings with Storm Christoph set to bring heavy rain, strong winds and potentially some significant flooding to England and Wales.
The Met Office Warning says:
Several days of persistent, and occasionally heavy, rain are expected to affect the region as Storm Christoph affects the UK. The heaviest and most persistent rain is likely to be across Wales and the high ground of northern England. By early Thursday, 30-60 mm of rain is expected to have fallen widely across the warning area, with 100-150 mm over the high ground of Wales and northern England. Up to 200 mm is possible across parts of north Wales and northwest England. Melting snow across higher parts of the Pennines may exacerbate the potential for flooding. Strong winds will also accompany the rainfall and may add to travelling difficulties across areas higher and more exposed routes.
