The Environment Agency, NRW and SEPA are still concerned that additional rainfall on to already saturated ground could well still lead to flooding and you are advised to keep up to date with the latest flood warnings and advise.
This weekends heavy rainfall heralds the start of an unsettled week as a series of low pressure systems are expected to move across the country. The first will arrive late Monday before another brings stronger winds and rain on Tuesday and another system brings rain on Wednesday. National Severe Weather Warnings have been issued for some of these systems given the now saturated ground over parts of the UK and will be updated in the coming days. Meanwhile the weather is expected to turn colder for many by the end of the week.
