Southport battered by rain and wind as yellow weather warning remains in place
Southport has been battered this weekend as almost 20cm of rain has fallen.
A yellow weather warning remains until Monday morning.
A frontal system is expected to become slow-moving across parts of North West England.
Rain is expected to become heavy and persistent, especially over hills exposed to the strong westerly flow.
Flooding is possible either from standing water or from rivers which have remained high after the large rainfall totals seen over the last few days.

Many parts of the warning area are likely to see 70-100 mm of rain, with some of the more exposed parts of north Wales and northwest England possibly seeing as much as 150-200 mm through the period.
There is some uncertainty in the exact areas likely to be affected by the heaviest rain.
As such, this warning will be kept under review to hone areas most at risk of the heaviest rain, and to potentially escalate to an Amber, should significant impacts become more likely.
