A welcome change to drier but colder weather is likely as we head through this week following heavy rainfall since Saturday night which is once again testing flood defences across the county.
November is continuing a remarkable run of wet weather, becoming the 8th successive month where rainfall has been above average, a sequence which began in April.....
...Through this week somewhat colder air is expected to spread southwards as pressure starts to rise.
This will result in weather systems being 'blocked' from moving eastwards across the country, at least in the short term.
The good news is that this means weather conditions will become much drier generally, although showers are still expected more especially in eastern areas exposed to the northerly breeze.
Frosts will develop inland from mid-week and some of the showers will become wintry, more especially over the hills, although they are not expected to cause a problem.
Looking further ahead into early December, there is a split between computer models.
