Warning of wet start to the weekend

By a County Press reporter

Wednesday, January 29, 2014


WET and windy weather is forecast to hit the Isle of Wight on Friday and the Met Office has issued a weather warning.

The 'be aware' warning for rain is in force from 8am on Friday to 3am on Saturday.

The Met Office said: "A further area of heavy rain will spread eastwards across the UK on Friday, clearing the southeast of England during the early hours of Saturday. 

"20-30mm of rain will fall quite widely. The heavy rain will be accompanied by strong to gale force winds.

"The public should be aware of possible disruption, primarily due to further flooding, chiefly in areas already, or recently, affected."

No doubt a hosepipe ban in the summer, not the right kind of rain you understand.
