A strengthening depression will spread rain and gusty winds across the United Kingdom into Tuesday.
Central and southern Britain will be targeted with the heaviest of the rain and strongest winds.
Despite a dry start to the day in London, Norwich and Portsmouth, residents will want to plan for rain late Monday afternoon and evening.

Travelers across the U.K. may want to plan extra time into their evening commute as rain could slow travel from Liverpool and Edinburgh to Cardiff and Exeter.
In London, residents traveling late in the day will have to contend with the onset of rainfall.
Heavy rain across central Britain could lead to a few instances of minor flooding. AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys said that "many parts of Wales and northern England will receive 25-50 mm (1-2 inches) of rain."
Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds are among locations that could receive as much as 75 mm (3 inches) of rain.
Normal rainfall for the entire month of June averages 40-60 mm (1.6-2.4 inches) throughout most of the United Kingdom.
In addition to people contending with wet weather, the wind will increase across Wales and South East England as a fresh to strong wind develops. Gales in coastal areas will create dangerous boating conditions.
This depression will be slow to exit the area with rainy spells and a blustery wind persisting through Tuesday.

Tuesday will end up being the windier day across much of Wales and England.
Across Wales and southern England, a northwesterly wind may gust to 40 mph (64 km/h) making for a cooler and blustery day.
"Wind gusts of 45-55 mph (72-88 km/h) across the English Channel will lead to rough seas and the potential for ferry delays," Roys adds.
While breezy conditions will remain on Wednesday, a turn to drier weather is expected across Great Britain.
