Gale force winds and heavy rain has meant another wild weather day for islanders.

Winds from the north east reached gale force eight earlier on today, with gusts of up to 55mph.

The winds are expected to decrease from this afternoon into this evening.

Jersey Met say that the island experienced half of the normal December rainfall in just 48 hours.

There were reports of trees blocking roads in Jersey on Mont du Presbytere in St Peter, La Route du Maufant in St Saviour and La Rue Du Val in St Martin.

Mont du Presbytere has now been cleared.

There are also reports of flooding on Princes Tower Road, St Saviour, close to Belvedere and in La Rue Du Craslin, St Peter.

Drivers are being urged to take care on the slippery roads.
