More rain expected in parts of UK

Heavy rain will again blight parts of the UK today as the remnants of Hurricane Bill move towards Scandinavia.











However, the South East will be treated to sunshine, with temperatures reaching 25C (77F).



Forecaster Matt Dobson, of MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said: "It will be a dry day today in the Midlands and the south eastern quarter, reasonably warm with sunny spells at times as the remnants of Bill settle down and heads towards Norway.



"Northern Ireland will be quite wet and windy and most areas will see heavy rain and strong wind.



"Cornwall, Devon, Cumbria, Northern England and Wales will cloud over after a promising start after a bit of patchy rain in the afternoon," Mr Dobson said.



Yesterday the UK was lashed with rain as the repercussions of the hurricane were felt across the country.



Scotland and Cumbria saw the worst of the bad weather - there was 24mm in Keswick and 31mm in Shap in Cumbria. There was also 10-15mm in Western Scotland.
