The Met Office issued a weather warning in the area, as they threatened: "A spell of persistent, and at times heavy rain is likely to cause some flooding impacts”.

Homes and businesses in the area could be affected by rising water levels, while there is a danger of spray and flooding on roads which is likely to increase journey times.

WXChart maps show torrential rain will be across the south-east of England at 9am on Sunday before beginning to ease off into the late morning and early afternoon.

A spokesperson for Weather Outlook said: "This morning there could be further heavy bursts of rain in the far south-east and in the north there will be showers.

"Through the day more organised bands of heavy and blustery showers push eastwards across southern and central regions.

"Windy, particularly in coastal counties."

The spokesperson added: "During Monday a band of wet weather pushes north-eastwards across the UK.
