It covers the south eastern tip of Lancashire, although most of the county can expect rain on Monday evening.

The Met Office said up to 25mm of rain is expected "quite widely" but the worst affected areas of the UK could see as much as 60mm.

A spokesman said: "This brings a risk of flooding and disruption, but the situation is uncertain such that the likelihood of this across any given county is small."

It follows flooding last week that saw trains cancelled in Lancashire, with homes under water in Blackpool.
