Met Offices warns of heavy rain in Burnham-On-Sea area tomorrow

Residents in the Burnham-On-Sea area have been warned of the potential for more flooding on Sunday (January 26th) as further heavy rainfall is predicted.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for Sunday when torrential rain and gales are expected.

A Met Office spokesman said: "Another Atlantic frontal system is also forecast to cross the UK during Sunday. Rainfall accumulations of over 20 mm are expected in many western parts."

"Strong winds are also expected. Gales are likely, especially along exposed coasts, with gusts of 50-60 mph."

The Enviroment Agency has issued a medium flood risk warning in Somerset, with all attention focussed on the flood-hit levels.

Farmers in Somerset are facing long-term problems as the flood water shows no sign of receding. More than 43 sq miles (27,000 acres) of productive farmland has been flooded across the county.
