Storm Frank is causing another round of strong winds and flooding rain to target the United Kingdom into Wednesday.
As Storm Frank tracks north of the British Isles, rain and wind will increase across Northern Ireland and Scotland on Tuesday afternoon and evening before spreading to Wales and England into Wednesday.
Rainfall amounts will generally average 25-75 mm (1-3 inches) across Northern Ireland, Scotland, the north of England and Wales. There will be localized amounts of up to 130 mm (5 inches), especially along the west-facing slopes of the higher terrain.
With rivers running high and the ground extremely saturated from western Scotland to Wales, the impending rain threatens to bring new or worsening flood problems. This includes around hard-hit Cumbria and Yorkshire.
