But the rain is set to end sooner rather than later – even though it’s likely to get worse before it gets better. Monday and Tuesday have already brought widespread showers and winds, and this is set to continue on Wednesday.
Maps show the rain on Wednesday will be concentrated on the east coast of England and Scotland, all the way from Aberdeen down to Ipswich for most of the day.
Lancashire is also set for a rainy day, with maps showing a concentrated area of rain expected to last until the end of Thursday.
Much of the south and Wales is expected to escape intense rain on Wednesday, but sporadic showers are still expected.

When will the weather get warm again?
Sooner than you think – Thursday will be the start of the turn.
Tom Morgan, a meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “It’s almost a week of two halves, the week begins much like the weekend was.
“It is quite unsettled and changeable, there will be some heavy showers around on Monday, but it won’t be feeling quite as cool as it did in many places this weekend.
“We will see some stubborn areas of low clouds and mist and fog, lasting through the mornings but most places will see dry weather with some sunshine at times, and temperatures will start to rise.”
Temperatures could hit the early 20s on Thursday, with the warmest weather in the south.
However, other parts are expected to get their fair share of the balmier air, with Yorkshire and Northern Ireland expected to reach 19C on Thursday.
Scotland is expected to remain characteristically cool, with highs of 16C expected in Edinburgh and the borders.

The west coast and Glasgow are unfortunately subject to yellow weather warnings for rain on Thursday and Friday, so will not be able to enjoy the warmer climes as much.
Unfortunately, the warmer weather is not expected to last into this weekend.
The Met Office forecast reads: “A band of cloud and increasingly patchy rain will push southeast through the weekend.
Ahead of this, areas of mist and fog will likely be slow to clear, whilst clearer weather follows into parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland.
“Dry conditions are likely to then dominate for much of the UK for the rest of the period, with only occasional spells of rain likely in the north and west at times.
“Fog will continue to be a feature of the weather with light winds.
“Temperatures are likely to remain somewhat above normal for the time of year, but with chilly nights at times too.
“A change to more unsettled conditions may get underway by the end of the period.”
Temperatures in September were two degrees warmer than their long term averages for all four UK nations.
Scotland had its second warmest, Wales its third and England its joint third, according to provisional figures released by the Met Office.
