By Ben Reid

It's time to get the umbrella out as weather experts predict a deluge of rain to fall as they issued an 18-hour warning.

Whilst many will see a wet day on Tuesday, September 14, there is the chance of very heavy rainfall for some, leading to disruption.

A yellow weather warning is in place across the region from 6am on Tuesday September 14, lasting until midnight the same day.

The warning stretches across the East Midlands including Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire.

There is a chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings.

On what to expect, the Met Office said: "Bus and train services probably affected with journey times taking longer and the chance of cancellations.

"Spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer with some difficult driving conditions and the chance of road closures.

"There is a small chance that some communities will become cut off by flooded roads.

"There is a slight chance of power cuts and loss of other services to some homes and businesses."

Rain is expected to start falling in Nottingham from around 7am on Tuesday and will be in place across the day.
