The Met Office has issued two warnings as Southampton is faced with MORE rain over the next three days.

The agency has issued a yellow wind and rain warning for tomorrow, with gusts of 60-70mph expected across the south coast.

20mm of rainfall is expected over the next few days, with a further rain warning for Sunday when up to 40mm of rainfall could fall in Hampshire – that’s more than SEVEN TIMES the daily average.

Authorities are expecting flooding problems, especially in areas right by the river, and the Environment Agency has released a map specifying the areas that are most likely to be hit in purple:
