Wintery showers and ‘gusty’ winds on the forecast for the region this week.

A NUMBER of weather warnings remain in place this week with further spells of heavy rain set to hit North Devon.

Strong winds and rainfall are expected through tonight (Mon) and tomorrow with a yellow warning for rain in place from 12.15am on Tuesday.

There will be a bright, showery interlude on Wednesday but another yellow warning for gusty winds and wintery showers is in place from 3pm until 12pm Thursday.

Gale force winds are likely to be a hazard in places with an amber warning for wind in place throughout the afternoon and overnight.

A third weather warning is also in place from 3pm on Friday until 11.45pm that night.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: “Yet another area of low pressure is expected to develop in the Atlantic, with associated frontal systems moving north and east across the UK during Friday afternoon and evening, bringing spells of heavy and persistent rain, especially across the southern parts of England and Wales.

“As is usual this far ahead, there is considerable uncertainty in the track of the system and therefore the location of the most intense rainfall.

“However, it seems likely that around 10 to 20 mm of rain will fall widely across England and Wales, with over 30 mm possible across parts of south Wales and southwest England.

“With ongoing flooding in some areas, any further rain will only exacerbate the situation.”
