The metro line has also been experiencing minor delays due to flooding near Algate.

The London Over Ground has been partially closed due to flooding in the Imperial Wharf area, with no service between the Welleston Junction and the Clapham Junction.

The southern train was affected by the flood, warning that the journey would be delayed by about half an hour.

They tweet: “The Imperial Wharf floods have blocked all lines through Shepherds Bush.

The meteorological center warned people to be vigilant during the trip and issued yellow weather warnings from 2am to midnight, with the most affected areas being east and northeast.

They added: “Heavy rains continue to move east and local flooding is possible.

“St James’ Park in London has received 26 mm or more of an inch of rain in the past hour.

“Sometimes there are opportunities for a few sunny spells in the west.”

But as the mercury rises to 21 degrees Celsius, the British hope to take advantage of warmer temperatures than Barcelona from tomorrow.

It comes after two days of heavy rains – with temperatures expected to rise for a week during the “Indian summer”.
