The weather in Derbyshire is set to take a turn for the worse later in the week, forecasters warn.

A future yellow severe weather warning for rain has been issued from 12:05am on Sunday (October 1) until 6pm on Monday evening (October 2).

The Met Office says spells of heavy and persistent rain are expected over some areas of western and northern Britain, accompanied by strong winds at times.

They add: “There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings and that some communities could become cut off by flooded roads.

“Where flooding occurs there is a slight chance of delays to train and bus services whilst spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

“There is a small chance of fast flowing water or deep floodwater causing danger to life. In addition, strong winds may be an additional hazard at times with a slight chance of trees falling, power cuts and loss of other services to homes and businesses.”
