THE weather in Devon and Somerset is expected to remain unsettled after Storm Ciarán battered the South West over the last couple days.

Storm Ciarán arrived in full force from Wednesday evening before waning at midnight yesterday (Thursday, November 2).

However, from 5am until midnight tomorrow, a yellow warning for rain is in place for much of southern England. This is expected to be heavy and thundery in places.

The ground is saturated in many areas, so some disruption is possible, especially to travel. Temperatures are expected to be around average for early November.

Frank Saunders, a chief forecaster with the Met Office, said: “After the events of this week, the forecast is moving into a period of fairly typical autumnal weather, with breezy conditions and spells of rain and showers, interspersed with some clearer and brighter periods.

"We still have warnings in the forecast, partly because the ground is already so wet but overall conditions are expected to be less impactful than we’ve seen over the last few days.

“Aside from scattered showers in the north and west of the UK, Bonfire Night (Sunday) will be largely dry and settled, although temperatures will be dipping compared with values last week.”

Conditions will remain unsettled until early next week.
