The Met Office has warned Britons about the severity of floods to come as some part of the country experienced half a month’s worth of a rainfall in a day. Though, it was quick to point out that many parts of the country will experience dry spells, with rain gradually
Meteorologist Alex Deakin said: “Friday, overall a lot drier cold starts because Northern Ireland and Scotland with frost here and some fog patches across parts of England - they'll be slow to clear away.
“The frost will be slow to lift across Scotland with showers coming in across the coast, in the north, well we could see some icy conditions here with a bit of snow on the hills.
“It is a dry, fine start for northern Ireland, but it is cold - just above freezing in Belfast perhaps but rural areas seeing a frost and some fog patches over our parts the Midlands.
“In eastern England in particular it's still quite damp but the persistent heavy rain has now eased away, so a much drier day in northeast England but still some showers coming in here through the day from the North Sea."
