RAIN is expected to hit Berkshire and Buckinghamshire with the Met Office issuing a yellow weather warning.

Weather forecasters predict 18 hours of heavy rain from 6am until midnight on Tuesday, September 14.

Forecasters said: "An area of rain is expected to move northeastwards across much of England on Tuesday, with thunder in a few places.

"15-25 mm of rain is likely quite widely with up to 40 mm in a few places, leading to some flooding and disruption. However, there is a small chance that this rain will be especially intense in a few places with 50-70 mm possible, and more significant disruption where this occurs.
