Watch the full forecast with Alex Beresford:
Insurers have warned flood defence spending must rise to a £1 billion a year over the next decade to prevent scenes like those which devastated Somerset last winter.
The Association of British Insurers is also calling for an end to building new homes in flood-risk areas.
It says some 20,000 new properties are being built on the floodplain each year, including 4,000 in places where there is significant risk of flooding.
