As the days shorten and the temperatures cool, winter is clearly round the corner and some parts of the UK are set to be battered by heavy rainfall.

According to the Met Office, it will be mainly sunny with showers across the country, while it will be mild and breezy overall.

But continuing last week's downpours and flooding in the southeast, there could be some heavy rainfall with thunder and hail in some parts of the country.

The heaviest and most frequent showers are to be seen in the west, with some eastern parts perhaps staying dry.

Isolated showers in Kent and Sussex could spread across the region with a chance of heavy showers in some parts.

It comes after Met Office meteorologist Alex Deakin warned there could be "persistent rain for a number of days" across the country from Monday afternoon as an Atlantic stream headed towards the UK.
