Wind and rain batter Gloucestershire as flood warnings remain in place

Wind and rain is hitting Gloucestershire

Comments (3)

Heavy rain and strong winds are greeting people this morning, with flood warnings remaining in place along much of the River Severn.

Downpours have been battering the county through much of the night, raising fears once again that waterways - already at near capacity - could overflow.

A flood warning is in place at Severn Ham near Tewkesbury, while flood alerts are still on along the river from Tewkesbury to Gloucester.

Wind gusts are predicted to hit about 50mph later today.

The rain should relent around lunchtime for today, but it's only temporary and more is set to sweep in mid-morning tomorrow.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are forecast to see more heavy rain and showers too.
