However, we may not escape the heavy rain that easily as just recently a spokesperson for the Met Office said that although we do not fall under the weather warning “this does not mean areas outside the warning area will not see severe weather.”

The said: “The Met Office National Severe Weather Warning Service (NSWWS) warns of the potential impacts caused by severe weather and the likelihood of those impacts occurring.

“More extreme impacts are expected within the warning zone, therefore although much of the North East and North Yorkshire outside the warning area this does not mean you will escape the rain completely.”
