Good news at last on the weather front
THREE days of torrential rain was finally clearing from Suffolk today – bringing the promise of a better bank holiday weekend for the county.
Up to a month and a half’s worth of rain has fallen on the county over the last three days with rainfall levels of between 60mm and 90mm said Steve Western from Norwich-based forecasting service Weatherquest.
But the rain clouds cleared from the north early this morning – and by the end of the rush hour the weather had started to dry out.
And the good news is that the weather seems set (reasonably) fair for the bank holiday weekend.
Mr Western said: “This should be the end of the really heavy rain. The weekend is looking pretty good. There might be the occasional shower, but nothing like we’ve had over the last few days.”
