UK and Europe weather forecast latest, September 2: Torrential downpour in UK to make the map turn WHITE
UK's weather forecast
The Met Office has issued a yellow rain warning for parts of England and Scotland on Wednesday, Express reported.
Met Office spokesman Oli Claydon told Express.co.uk it will be a bright sunny start for much of the UK on Tuesday. Over the course of the day there will be an increasing amount of cloud, but it will remain dry for most parts of the UK, except for parts of Northern Ireland and western Scotland. Rain is forecast over the coming days, and WXCHARTS maps for total rainfall accumulation show some parts of the UK mapped white - indicating high levels of rainfall to come.

The Met Office has issued a yellow rain warning affecting parts of Cumbria, Dumfries and Galloway, East Ayrshire, North Ayrshire, South Ayrshire and South Lanarkshire.
The rain warning is active from 12pm on Wednesday, September 2 until 11.59pm.
Mr Claydon said: “As we go through into tomorrow (Wednesday) there will be some rain which starts to develop in northwestern parts of England and southwestern parts of Scotland, so Cumbria and the southwestern Scotland area."
"[There will be] some fairly persistent rain moving through as we get a front moving in from the west."

Mr Claydon added there would be "some potentially reasonable rainfall volumes" for areas which have already seen a lot of rain, so it will be "falling on saturated ground."
The Met Office warn up to 60mm (approx. 2.5 inches) of rain could fall over some areas within the warning zone.
The warning states: "A spell of heavy rain will affect southwest Scotland on Wednesday afternoon and evening."
"15-30mm is likely quite widely with as much as 40-60mm in a few places, mainly hilly parts of Dumfries and Galloway. Drier conditions will return on Wednesday night."

The front moving in from the west on Wednesday is expected to move eastwards across the country, so the UK could see some more cloud and breeziness. As the front moves in there will be rain for some parts from the west throughout Wednesday.
From Thursday, for the rest of the week the weather is likely to follow a theme of "sunshine and showers", and it will be breezy in the far north.
With a showery couple of days forecast towards the end of the working week, Friday looks likely to be similar to Thursday.
There will be some persistent rainfall to the far north of Scotland but some sunny breaks elsewhere, improving by the end of the weekend.

Over the weekend a ridge of high pressure is expected to settle things down, reducing winds and bringing some drier weather.
Again for the weekend there is widely expected to be sunshine and showers, with breezier conditions further north. Temperatures are forecast to reach the high teen's today, and in London highs of 21/22C could be possible at some points.
These sorts of temperatures are expected to be consistent throughout the week. Towards the end of August swathes of weather warnings were issued after the arrival of Storm Francis, which brought winds as strong as 78mph to some parts of the UK.
The Met Office has now named the new storm names for the 2020/21 season. From September 1, 2020, the next storm to arrive in the UK will be Storm Aiden.
