Storms and Floods 4/2/14

The latest weather forecast is for a band of rain to spread east into Somerset during this evening, with some heavy bursts as it clears into Wednesday morning. Strong south easterly winds are expected with rainfall totals of between 15 – 25mm. Whilst river levels are generally falling at present, we can expect levels to rise for a time overnight in response to the forecast rainfall and this could pose a risk of flooding to low lying land and minor roads. Further bands of showery rain will spread in from the west on Wednesday morning accompanied during the afternoon by gale force westerly winds. These showers will tend to gradually ease late on Wednesday evening.
