Forecast for more bad weather

The Isle of Wight was hit by flooding before Christmas, including in Ryde (pictured above) and more bad weather could be on the way. Picture by Robin Crossley.

UNSETTLED weather is set to continue on the Isle of Wight with the third weather warning for the Isle of Wight issued this week.

A yellow 'be aware' Met Office warning for heavy rain is in force from 00.05am to 9pm on Friday.

The Met Office said: "Another spell of unsettled weather is expected on Friday with further wet and windy conditions likely across western areas in particular."

The Met Office chief forecaster added: "Rain will fall on saturated ground, whilst strong winds and lowering pressure will combine with high tides around the UK coastline. This leads to the risk of some flooding, particularly in coastal areas where some very large waves are likely."

A warning for heavy rain is already in place for tomorrow (Wednesday) from 6am to midnight.
