BBC Weather's Carol Kirkwood forecasted a new band of heavy rain will be moving in eastwards across the United Kingdom throughout Monday as six flood warnings remain in place in England. Ms Kirkwood warned a "plethora of weather fronts" are pushing in the new wave of bad weather alongside strong winds pummelling the country north to south. The BBC Weather meteorologist said: "The Environmental Agency still has two warnings on for East Anglia to watch out for but across the UK, or in England, we have six warnings from the Environment Agency with more rain on the way today.

"You can see the rain as it’s been falling through the course of the night - a new band coming in from the west, drifting eastwards.

"That’s courtesy of a plethora of weather fronts coming our way and if you look at the isobars, particularly in the northwest, the squeeze fun them tells you that it’s going to be a windy day, particularly so in the northwest but in other parts of the UK as well."

Ms Kirkwood continued: "Gusts now in the Outer Hebrides of 60-65 mph but it’s going to be fairly gusty this morning through the Irish Sea and also the English Channel.

"Even inland we’ve got gusty winds around this band of rain which is continuing to move from the west to the east, it’s heavy at the moment but it will turn a little bit lighter and more patchy in nature as it makes its way into East Anglia and the southeast.
