A 750 mile long rainstorm is set to hit the UK tomorrow according to the Met Office's latest map. It will be bring heavy rain for much of the country, including Coventry and Warwickshire.

For some areas there could be up to 6mm of rain per hour, reports the Mirror. While the heaviest rain is set for tomorrow (May 14), the latest local Met Office forecast for our area shows that, after a sunny day today, it is set to turn wet this evening.

Then the 'heavy showers' will hit late this evening and into the morning. It is in stark contrast to the scorching weather over the weekend.
