Met Office issues warning of more stormy weather in Burnham today

Burnham-On-Sea residents have again been warned by the Met Office to expect possible flooding today (Sunday) when yet another storm sweeps in from the Atlantic.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for heavy rain and high winds for the region.

It says outbreaks of rain, often heavy at times, will lead to up to 20mm – almost an inch – falling along with brisk winds.

A spokesman said: "This additional rainfall, following the recent wet weather, means that the public should be aware of an increased risk of both surface water and river flooding as well as disruption to transport."

Today's stormy weather is forecast at the same time as the evening high tide at 9.52pm.

The Met Office also warned that the bad weather could continue until at least the middle of the month. It said: "The unsettled theme looks set to continue. While this means showers and longer spells of rain will continue to affect the UK, conditions are not expected to be as stormy as of late."

"The most frequent and most persistent rain is then likely to be to the west and northwest where there is also a risk of occasional gales in exposed areas."
