After severe flooding in parts of England earlier this month, the last news anyone was hoping to hear was of a further deluge.

Thanks to Storm Sebastien though, it appears likely that the UK will be hit with another serious downpour.

A tropical storm from the Atlantic, Storm Sebastien has been heading North-East with increasing speed and looks set to strike the UK with considerable impact later this week.

However, the storm has been steadily building speed as it heads towards towards the UK and is now expected to make landfall on the South-West coast of England by the middle of the week.

How bad is it likely to be?

60mm is the equivalent of two weeks' rain which, all falling within a single day, could become dangerous.

Yellow weather warnings have been put in place in both South-West and North-East England.

The East Midlands and South Yorkshire areas hit with flooding earlier this month are predicted to be hit hard again, with further flooding a distinct possibility.

Seven flood warnings are currently in place, along with 60 flood alerts (which are less severe).

From midnight on Tuesday until 6pm Wednesday, there is a “danger to life” flood warning in place in Yorkshire.

As the storm arrives on British shores, it is predicted that waves as tall as 22 feet could lash the coast of South-West England.

What has the Met Office said?

Met Office weather forecaster Alex Burkill said: "Across the next five days we have got warnings for each day.

"On Wednesday it's covering that area of Yorkshire and Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, that area which saw the severe flooding. At the moment, the rainfall is not expected to be particularly heavy for the time of year, but we are expecting it to be significant.

"There are likely to be some impacts."
