Heavy rain has been forecast to hit northern England after flash flooding in the south.
Dozens of flood alerts were in place across the UK on Tuesday, after commuters captured images of London buses ploughing through flood water on Monday night.
The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for rain in northern areas of England until 10pm.
The meteorologist Grahame Madge said north-eastern England could experience up to 50mm of rain throughout the day – even higher levels than recorded in the south overnight.
An HGV was captured making huge ripples through flood water on the A4 between Hyde Park Corner and Knightsbridge underground stations in central London on Monday night.
Nearby St James’s Park was hit by 35mm of rain in just six hours after midnight, the Met Office said. About 26mm of this rainfall was recorded in just one hour.
Storrington in West Sussex also experienced 30mm between midnight and 6am, while Market Bosworth in Leicestershire had 29mm.
Madge said north-eastern England could experience up to 50mm of rain on Tuesday, while cars were seen ploughing through deep flood water in Whitley Bay, Tyneside.
He said: “The rainfall is subsiding for much of the country now but the low-pressure system is going out into north-east England and south-east Scotland. It will still be a bit showery elsewhere but the main downpours are converging over the north-east.
“The forecast for the next few days in England shows high pressure moving in, leading to more settled weather.”
Strong winds were also predicted to compound the rain on the east coast, while western areas were likely to experience sunny spells and scattered showers.
The Environment Agency issued 54 flood alerts for areas where flooding was possible, and four flood warnings across England.
Parts of London, Birmingham and Cumbria were covered by the flood warnings, with disruption to homes, travel and power likely.
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency issued flood alerts for Edinburgh and the Lothians and the Scottish Borders; Natural Resources Wales had one in place along the country’s northern coast.
