Rain And Flood Warnings Everywhere

A couple of weeks ago I was writing about the hosepipe band that had been put in place, and the drought that we were in. Today and this weekend we have seen a lot of rain, and along with very strong winds, resulting in a lot of water sitting around not being able to run away.  The met off have issued 172 Flood Alerts, which means Flooding possible, be prepared, and 32 Flood Warnings, which means Flooding is expected immediate action required. Luckily none of these have been issued for the Oxford area as of Sunday, but please keep and eye on the Environment Agency website for any changes.

I think this has been the wettest drought in living memory. The sun is back out again this morning.
