Exeter prepares for heavy rain and flooding as weather warning remains
Exeter is preparing for heavy rain today following a weather warning issued by the Met Office.
A yellow warning of heavy rain has been issued and is likely to stay in place until Friday evening.
The city is likely to see the first of the heavy rain tonight with scattered showers that will die away to leave a dry, cold and frosty night for many areas with some clear spells.
Southeasterly winds will strengthen later with cloud and rain edging into Cornwall by dawn. The minimum temperature will be 0 °C.

Tomorrow will start dry but persistent rain in the west will become heavier and gradually edge northeastwards across all parts, and winds will continue to strengthen with gales likely.
The Exeter based Met office has said the “public should be aware that some minor flooding impacts from rivers and surface water are expected.”
Heavy rain will continue through Friday as the weather warning remains.
A chief forecaster said:
“An active frontal system, struggling to bring milder air into the south of the country, is expected to bring 20-30 mm of rainfall quite widely, and possibly as much as 50-60 mm in a few locations on high ground exposed to the strong southeasterly winds.
These accumulations are expected to result in some river or surface water flooding.”
