Rain tomorrow exoected

Please see the latest weather report from the Met Office

'A slow-moving Atlantic weather front looks set to bring an extended period of rain across a good part of Cumbria stating tomorrow morning and continuing through into Wednesday morning. The rain will wax and wane in both areal extent and intensity but, as the totals gradually mount up, so some surface water-based impacts look quite possible with accumulations of standing water potentially impacting road and perhaps rail traffic too. One or two localised instances of property flooding also can’t be ruled out. As a result a precautionary yellow (low impact) rain warning has been issued this morning for this event, valid from 11:00 tomorrow morning through until 07:00 Wednesday morning. The warning is mirrored in this morning’s Flood Guidance Statement which shows Cumbria on low flood risk for tomorrow and Wednesday, the risk derived from surface water with a lower likelihood of any minor river-based impact

Once the rain band finally gets away on Wednesday things are looking to settle down as high pressure starts to build in towards the UK so this will hopefully be the last significant rainfall for a little while.
