West Sussex faces being battered again by heavy rain and strong gusting winds this afternoon and evening (Wednesday December 18).

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning as gusts up to 60mph are expected this evening.

It will be a fairly quiet morning with some cloud.

However, the forecast is for the wind to pick up with rain clouds to arrive mid-afternoon.

The wind will grow in strength throughout the day with the strongest gusts after around 9pm.

The rain and wind will continue until early Thursday.

Friday is expected to be far calmer, with some sunny spells, but the heavy rain and gusting winds will return on Saturday.
