Shropshire residents have been told to brace themselves for disruption amid a Met Office weather forecast for the nation as areas across the West Midlands and Wales are expected to be hit.

The national weather service has warned of spells of heavy rain and strong winds tomorrow (Thursday, November 24).

It has been reported by the Independent that the weather warning could see power cuts with infrastructure and supply at risk.

The rain is also likely to cause flooding of homes and businesses and is expected to impact bus and train services across Wales as well as car journey times.

The yellow weather warning is set to last from 10am to 7pm tomorrow.

Cloudy and rainy weather is expected to last throughout much of the week with some sunny spells.
