UK’s record-breaking amount of rain set to continue as weekend washout expected

Britain's record-breaking amount of rain is set to continue across this weekend as another washout is expected.

Yesterday (November 24) was plagued with transport delays, power cuts and flooding due to the heavy amounts of rain, as well as the strong winds.

BBC Weather's Helen Willetts said yesterday: "We've had more rain today and adding to the total's that already made it a record-breaking month in Scotland and in southern parts of England with many places having a month's rain or more. Today's [yesterday] rain has added to those amounts.

"Tomorrow [today November 25] will have just a window of slightly drier weather but not for long. Rain from the west will be heavy with hail and thunder and sleet and snow over the tops of the mountains.

"Just a few places in the south will escape altogether and temperatures will still be around average for the time of year from 9C to 14C.

"This weekend the weather fronts rush in again as November is still not finished with its rain. Saturday brings the rain and the strengthening winds with gales accompanying it.
