Gloucestershire may escape the worst of yet more rain heading in from the Atlantic, but gales of up to 70mph are expected to lash the county.

As floodwater in the Severn vale recedes, there is a threat of more rain too, the Met Office says.

While gales tonight should give way to a more settled and dry Monday, high winds are expected again on Tuesday, along with scattered showers which will extend in to Wednesday.

Despite rainfall easing off, the Environment Agency still has a Flood Warning for the River Severn at Tewkesbury. The stretch of the Severn from Tewkesbury to Gloucester is on a lesser Flood Alert, along with the Frome and the Cam in the Stroud district. There are no severe flood warnings for any stretches of the Severn or Wye.
