Rain Eventually Easing, But Not For Long..
It's been a wet start to the week with many parts of southern and central England seeing in excess of 25-50mm of rainfall to go with the flooding which affected parts of Wales during the weekend.
Obviously all of the rainfall is making for some very difficult conditions for travel, with localised flooding affecting many regions. For the latest on the flooding situation please check the Environment Agency Website
During the remainder of the day and into the evening the rain will gradually ease, although sharp, frequent showers will continue to affect coastal counties of southern England and Wales overnight. Southeast England in particular could see some further heavy downpours right through into tomorrow.
Elsewhere tomorrow it's a sunshine and showers day - so although not a complete respite for flood affected areas, it will be an improvement on today. The heaviest and most frequent showers will run through southern and western regions - further inland and through many eastern areas we should see a lot more dry than wet weather.
Wednesday will follow a similar pattern, although by this point the showers may become a little more widespread. Then into Thursday and Friday the next low pressure system moves in, bringing a spell of wet and windy weather with it, and that theme continues into the weekend.
All in all it's a very unsettled start to summer and with the jetstream
expected to stay over or to the south of the UK, we're likely to keep the cool, often wet weather going for some time yet..
