The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for heavy rain and strong winds today (Saturday, February 6th) in the Burnham-On-Sea area.

A spell of persistent rain, heavy at times, accompanied by windy conditions, will affect the Burnham area through the day, raising the risk of potential flooding.

20-30 mm of rain is expected to fall quite widely across the area with 50-70 mm in some parts of the region.

The Met Office says southerly gales or severe gales are expected with gusts of 40-50 mph inland and locally 65 mph over higher ground and coasts.

“As this rain will be falling on near-saturated ground, please be aware of the risk of localised flooding and perhaps some disruption to travel,” says a spokesman.
