The Environment Agency issued 60 flood alerts, mainly in south-west England, and six warnings for the South West. see this website for details.
April flooding on the river Frome - the jet ski!
Met Office amber warnings - advising people to be prepared for severe weather - are in place for the south-west. This says "Periods of heavy rain, including some torrential downpours, are likely to occur across east Wales, the West Midlands, West Country and into central southern England, gradually clearing northwards during the day. The public should be prepared for an increased risk of both surface water and river flooding during this period."
There are six flood warnings - meaning flooding is expected - in place in the South West, though none of these are for the river Frome.
The adverse conditions are affecting travel, with "major disruption" to services between London Paddington and Devon and Cornwall, First Great Western said on its website.
Alerts for South West trains say;
Flooding between Highbridge & Burnham and Weston-super-Mare, between Nailsea & Backwell and Bristol Temple Meads and also between Exeter St Davids and Taunton.
Trains are currently unable to run between Exeter St Davids and Taunton. Buses are currently being ordered. Journey times may be extended by up to 60 minutes.
Trains are also currently unable to run between Bristol Temple Meads, Weston-super-Mare and Taunton.
It's looking unlikely that we'll see another jet ski on the Frome this week!
