Have your say

This month is gearing up to be the wettest January in the county since 1948.

Pitsford weather station has recorded high levels of rainfall throughout the month which have already made 2014 the wettest January since in 26 years.

And with more rainfall on the way, it could turn out to be the rainiest January since 1948.

Forecasters say rain is expected to continue on and off throughout today (Thursday), and it will continue to feel cold in a gentle, mainly easterly breeze, with temperatures struggling at around 4C.

The rain will clear away this evening to leave a dry night with the wind veering south and south-westerly. Lows will fall to about 2C.

Tomorrow (Friday) morning will be cloudy with further drizzly spells.

It will be a windy day on Saturday with a fresh breeze. It will remain dry through the morning, but outbreaks of light rain are likely during the afternoon.

Temperatures will be similar to Friday, with highs reaching 6C, falling overnight to 2C.

Sunday will remain largely dry, although showers cannot be ruled out for the afternoon.
