MORE wet weather is on the way, with the Met Office warning of heavy rain on Friday and Sunday.

The 'be aware' weather warning are in force for areas including the Isle of Wight from 12.10am to 11.45pm on Friday and *6am to 11.45pm on Sunday.

The Met Office said: "Bands of rain are expected to move eastwards across south and southwest England during Friday. Rainfall accumulations of 10 to 20 mm are expected over most parts, with 30 mm or more possible over some areas, especially windward coasts and hills.

"Another spell of wet and very windy weather will cross the UK from the west during Sunday. 

"Heavy rain and gales are likely to affect most areas for a time with further flooding possible in prone areas, particularly southern parts of England and Wales where the ground remains saturated following earlier rain."
