We've recorded some large rainfall totals over the past few days and we are still at risk of flooding with more wet and windy weather on the way for the weekend. The Met Office has issued a Yellow Alert for the wind and rain which will spread north through the day tomorrow and overnight into Sunday. We could see more localised flooding with the rain falling onto already saturated ground. The Environment Agency also has Flood Warnings in place.

As for today it a case of the calm before the storm with plenty of sunshine on offer and light winds. Temperatures reaching 8 or 9c.

Tonight with the light winds we can expect some mist and fog patches to form. Temperatures will be close to freezing with widespread ground frost.

Saturday will be cold but dry through the morning, the cloud will build from the south. In the afternoon rain will sweep northwards and will continue through the evening giving us a good soaking overnight. The wind will increase too and we could see gusts of 50mph.

The rain will clear through on Sunday morning, northern counties waking up to cloud and rain before it turns a little drier. There is still the chance of a few showers behind the rain band though and it will remain fairly breezy.
