THE NEXT 36 hours or so are looking seriously wet, with the added joy of some pretty severe wind to really make sure the rain makes itself felt.
The main band of rain will arrive in the early hours of Wednesday morning, with the coastal areas of East Sussex waking to heavy rain driven by wind gusts of up to 50mph, maybe higher in exposed areas.
Fortunately the heaviest rain should pass by lunchtime, but further downpours will arrive during the afternoon, with no real respite from the wind until later on Thursday.
In total, rainfall accumulation may well exceed 25mm in some areas during Wednesday, bringing the risk of localised flooding and treacherous driving conditions.
April looks like bowing out as a complete contrast to the warm start to spring in March, with similar weather as we’ve seen for the past week or two returns, heavy showers and possible overnight frosts under clear skies.
There is a hint that the start of next week may see some warmer temperatures, but nothing out of the ordinary for the time of year.
We’ve just issued an alert for tomorrows weather, it is really looking like a work from home day.
