MORE rain and wind is expected this week as the unsettled weather spell looks set to continue.

The start of the month yesterdaybegan with heavy rain and blustering winds, and although weather experts believe it will not be as bad this week, showers and a drop in temperature is expected.

Around 10 to 15mm of rain fell in Suffolk yesterday and gusts were up to 40mph because of an area of low pressure sweeping across from the south west of the UK.

“It will be about 13/14 degrees Celsius (55F). There will be some showers, coming from the westerly direction.”

After a dry summer and fairly mild autumn, yesterday was a grim reminder that winter is well on the way.
