BRITS will be battered with two inches of rain in just 12 hours -sparking flood chaos and a week-long washout.
The Met Office has issued a weather warning from midday to midnight tomorrow for much for England, and some of Wales.

Up to 60mm – two inches – could fall, with a yellow warning urging Brits to be aware of possible floods.
Areas affected include London, Manchester, Devon, Cornwall, Yorkshire, Birmingham and Oxford – among others.
The warning says: “Rain is expected to move northwards across much of England on Monday, heavy at times, especially during the afternoon and evening.
“15 to 25 mm is likely to fall quite widely, and there is potential for 40 to 60 mm to fall in a few places.”
More rain will follow for the rest of the week, with Wednesday and Thursday to see showers, winds and fog.
Southern and western parts of the UK look set to become cloudy on Monday with outbreaks of rain pushing in.
And unfortunately it looks as though the unsettled weather will not be going anywhere, as miserable conditions are expected to dominate most of October.
The Met Office said the northwest could see heavy showers with a risk of coastal gales starting next week.
WINTER IS COMING
Despite the downpours, temperatures should remain around average for this time of the year – although it may feel colder at times in the wind and rain.
A long-range forecast states that, while some drier and brighter spells are likely from October 26 onwards, these will also bring with them more widespread overnight frost and fog.
The Met Office added: “Early signs for mid-November indicate a return to frequent bands of rain and strong winds moving from west to east.”
