Flood victims will have a brief respite from the downpours today, but high spring tides and yet more heavy rain in the coming days mean their plight will continue for some time.
Forecasters are predicting a break in the bad weather today, but experts at the Met Office have issued severe weather warnings of winds of up to 80mph and heavy rain of up to 30mm (1.2in) for the South West, southern England, south Wales and Northern Ireland from tomorrow until Wednesday.
As of this morning the EA had three severe flood warnings, warning of danger to life, in place around the River Severn in the Midlands, along with 114 less severe flood warnings, caused by high tides and swollen rivers.
