The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for most parts of Britain, including Cumbria.

The warning means the public should be aware of the potential for localised flooding.

The North West could also be affected by hail stone, and there will be warm, humid conditions.

A maximum temperature of 17°C is expected on Saturday in Barrow and Ulverston.

At this stage, the location of the heaviest rainfall in the country remains uncertain. In places the rain is expected to fall at around 10mm per hour.

The yellow weather warning is valid for Cumbria from 3am tomorrow until 11.45pm.
