Our Solution

Torrential rain and severe weather conditions are causing chaos up and down the country as warnings of fiercer winds and flooding plague many regions. According to guardian.co.uk, miserable weather is 'expected almost everywhere' as at least 'four different fronts' make their way across the country. Furthermore, heavy showers, including thundery ones, are predicted for tomorrow and Wednesday. Commuter rail services in the south-west have been disrupted with some trains to London cancelled due to flooding of the track. In addition, the main A30 and A390 roads were also badly affected by the 'sheer quantity of rain'. As a result, commuters may want to work from home in a garden office, for example, in order to avoid the wet and potentially dangerous weather conditions. Tom Tobler, forecaster with MeteoGroup, predicted two-thirds of the average rainfall for the whole month could fall over some areas: "It will be almost a month's rainfall in certain areas. It is certainly a lot of rain. There will be some flooding. I imagine the figure for total rainfall in the month will get up to the average tomorrow, if not above it." In addition Nick Moore, of the Environment Agency, commented to dorsetecho.co.uk: "We strongly urge people to sign up to flood warnings, keep a close eye on local weather forecasts and be prepared for the possibility of flooding."
