The recent wet weather is going to stay with for some time and could cause disruptions to major events in the UK.
Unsettled weather has been forecasted until the end of June affecting Wimbledon, Royal Ascot and the pre-Olympic festivals. The rain already put a dampner on the Queens Diamond Jubilee and sporting events.
The Met Office have issued severe weather warnings for South West England, London & South East England, East of England and with that the risk of further localised and surface flooding, as well as very difficult driving conditions.
The heavy rain and wind caused problems right across the UK over the weekend.
Flash floods on Saturday morning brought havoc to communities in west Wales following heavy rainfall and residents there are continuing the clean up.
Some 150 people were rescued and evacuated from homes and caravan parks near Aberystwyth on Saturday after twice as much rain fell in 24 hours as normally falls in the area in the whole of June.
A number of rivers burst their banks as the stormwater flowed downstream. Among the worst affected areas were Talybont, Dol-y-bont, Llandre, and Penrhyncoch.
The South East was also affected by floods, with firefighters in West Sussex receiving more than 80 flood-related calls between 10.30pm on Sunday and 3am on Monday.
Basement flats in South Terrace on Littlehampton seafront were badly hit, with some properties being flooded up to 4ft (1.2m) deep, West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service said.
Flooding also caused the closure of the M1 near Leeds on Sunday night. West Yorkshire Police said the motorway was shut in both directions between junctions 42 and 47 after flash flooding made driving too dangerous. It will be reopened on Monday afternoon.
