The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning of heavy rain for London.

They have forecast that short periods of heavy rain fall could see some localised flooding and transport disruption across London. 

It is predicted that “flooding of a few homes and businesses is likely”, while journey times may be longer as a result of “spray and flooding on the roads”.  

Bus and train services are also expected to be impacted with “journey times taking longer”.
