“There’s weather warnings from Monday to Wednesday and starting from 4am, there will be 20 hours of rain in some places.”
Mr Partridge added: “England will see showers for much of the week.
“Scotland, in particular, the west coast, will have the best of the weather for a change, with up to 18 degrees.
