SEVERE weather warnings have been issued by the Met Office for today and tomorrow.

It should ease off tomorrow morning but a "be aware" rain warning will stay in place in case of surface flooding. Between 10mm and 20mm of rain is thought to be on the way.
Some respite is predicted on Friday but more warnings and another lengthy soaking are on the way for Saturday.
