WEATHER LATESTIt is thought that the storm tracked further south than predicted. Dave Throup, area manager for the Environment Agency, said: "The storm tracked further south than forecast, meaning we've missed the wind so far but have had a lot of rain. Parts of Gloucestershire have seen worst of the rain. Some places have had over two inches."Heavy rain is expected through the rush hour period, but it should have stopped by 9am. There will then be lighter rain showers from late morning, persisting throughout the day. Top temperatures will be 12C. This evening will see more heavy rain from around 6pm. Winds will ease off throughout the day.— Environment Agency (@EnvAgency) October 27, 2013
Gloucestershire weather expert Ian Thomas, from Dursley, said we won't see the dramatic storm that has been promised. He said: "The winds haven't been anything remotely like what they said they would be. The winds might pick up and we might have a few gusts of 50 to 60mph but nothing higher than that."Veteran weatherman John Kettley said: "The stormy weather has certainly missed Gloucestershire. We have had a narrow escape really but forewarned is forearmed as they say."Looking ahead, it is a calmer picture but still a wet one. More rain will follow on Tuesday but it should clear by the evening. The rest of the week looks largely cloudy with occasional outbreaks of rain. Top temperatures this week of 11C to 13C.ADVICEEbley Firewworks display will be going ahead tonight although the bonfire is cancelled. This is the latest update from its organisers:
